    How to prevent links from lock screen from opening in Edge?


    In our small office I am using Chrome web browser with specially set up GPO restrictions that provide white-listing for which websites can be visited, etc. Chrome is also set up as default web browser.

    So I just noticed today, that if someone clicks one of these links from a lock screen (circled in red):

    It will open up in Edge, even though I set up Chrome as a default web browser.

    Can someone tell me how to change this?

    Or, if it's not possible, how can I uninstall Edge?

    :)

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    Hi Josey -

    Thanks for the quick reply. While your suggestion does change the sign in process, it doesn't address the differing screenshot question. Following the steps doesn't make the login screenshot the same as the Lock screenshot. As I mentioned, I can't even find the screenshots being used for both screens.

    Still looking a solution to this. Open to any other suggestions you might have to the problem. Thanks!

    Lock vs Login screen screenshot


    You can use your own image of any background and just go to settings/personalize/lock screen and click on browse as in the image below. It should make whatever picture you use as the Lock Screen
