    Stop windows store as default protocol handler on chrome


    On chrome, I once clicked on remember my choice for this "link/filetype"
    e.g.




    Stop windows store as default protocol handler on chrome [​IMG]



    Now when I go to a windows store site on google chrome
    e.g. The Dark Crystal - Microsoft Store
    It auto launches windows store app..


    Stop windows store as default protocol handler on chrome [​IMG]


    When it launches, all my audio from other apps gets diverted to this app

    I want to
    • reset this protocol handler on chrome to stop it auto launching the windows store
    • stop the windows store app from stealing the sound card audio

    :)

    When trying to set Protocol Handler in Chrome, (for Bitcoin, Gmail, Etc) Windows gives me a dialog box that states "To change your default apps, go to Settings > System > Default Apps"

    Vanessa,

    I can not determine if this is an issue in Edge or IE because I do not use those browsers, however Chrome is acting as it should and adding the protocols to it's "Handlers" section. It is Windows 10 that is getting in the way, and when I try to save
    the settings I get a Windows toast message preventing it. I went into
    Settings > System > Default Apps > Choose default apps by protocol and was able to switch my 'mailto' handler to Chrome and Windows stepped out of the way and allowed Chrome to save that setting... Now I need to set my Bitcoin protocol.

    How do I add a new protocol 'URL:Bitcoin' to that list so I can set it to Chrome?

    Original Title: Trouble registering Protocol Handlers (Windows 10)

    Just upgraded to Windows 10 and every time I try to set my Protocol Handler in Chrome, (for Bitcoin, Gmail, Etc) Windows gives me a dialog box that states "To change your default apps, go to Settings > System > Default Apps" but there is no way in that area
    of settings that I can change this behavior. I even tried to 'Choose default app by protocol' and no dice! How do I fix this?? Why is Windows 10 being such a pain about this?

  4. Stop windows store as default protocol handler on chrome

    Hi madmax2.

    Chrome, can't be sure but I would check Content settings.

    Click three dots upper right, click settings, click three bars upper left, click Advanced, click Privacy and Security, click Content Settings. First I would look at Handlers.

    On sound, click on speaker is systray, playback devices, click on your playback device, click on properties, click on advance tab, uncheck "Allow applications to to exclusive.... ". Note your changes so you can reset.
