    Making Tor Browser as default browser and configuring VPN (Windows 10)

    It didn't work.

    This is what I did.

    I uninstalled Tor Browser and reinstalled it. When prompted to ask where to save it, I saved it here. C:/Users/Hewlett/AppData/Local/Tor Browser/Browser/firefox.exe

    So all the files that comes with the installation of Tor Browser bundle are in AppData/Local.

    Then. I opened Notepad, copy-pasted the contents and changed the path as instructed from C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe to C:\\Users\\Hewlett\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe

    (Note: The line that I changed actually says "C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0" so I changed it to "C:\\Users\\Hewlett\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0"

    I saved it using the extension .reg. Afterwards, I double-clicked the icon of the reg file hopingto run it. I restarted my computer hoping that it works.

    But still, Tor Browser was not in the list of "set as default programs".

    NOTE: These are the contents that I copy-pasted. (Beginning from the line that says "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00")

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ; Infamous capabilities:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tor Browser\Capabilities]

    "ApplicationDescription"="Tor Browser - Anonymity Online"

    "ApplicationIcon"="C:\\Users\\MyUser\\AppData\\Local\\Tor Browser\\Browser\\firefox.exe,0"

    "ApplicationName"="Tor Browser"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tor Browser\Capabilities\FileAssociations]

    ".htm"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".html"="TorBrowserURL"

    ".shtml"="TorBrowserURL"

    In order for the Tor browser to appear in Default Programs or Default Apps listing, it needs to be "registered" with Default Programs manually. See:

    New Release of Tor Browser 8.0

    Tor Browser Stopped Working

    If you are upgrading / reinstalling tor browser, don't forget to remove any remaining files from the previous (and most likely faulty) install:

    Code: $ sudo apt-get remove tor-browser $ rm -r ~/.tor-browser-en[/quote]
