    News & Interest default browser issue


    When Clicking a card, say a traffic or weather card, in News & Interests the app? opens Edge
    However, my default browser is Vivaldi!
    Why is this happening?
    Can I change this behaviour so that Vivaldi is used under all circumstances?

    :)

  2. Unable to set default browser

    • Does this issue happens while you try to set other browser as default too or is it specific to specific browser?

    Any browser.

    Already did the steps you suggested. It's some kind of bug where it's impossible to set a default browser at all.

    I heard elsewhere from one other user
    that it seems to be a problem with upgrading to 10 on the SP3. Sounds very specifc.

    Default Browser Issue

    Hi,

    We need more information regarding your concern with your default browser settings. When did the issue start? Were there any changes made to your computer before the issue started? Have you tried resetting your default app settings through the settings app
    and the control panel? If not, kindly do so by following these steps:

    • Type default app settings on the Cortana search bar.
    • Click on Default app settings.
    • Click on Reset, then re-select the browser that you want to set as default.
    • After that, click on Set defaults by app.
    • Look for the browser that you want to set as default on the left panel, select it, then click on
      Set this program as default.
    • Click OK, then check if the issue persists.

    We look forward to your response.
