  2. Can't change magnet protocol URI program

    When going to default programs for protocols, it has google chrome set as the default program for these links. I want the default to be my torrent program, but the only option available is google chrome.

    I've tried making an update here "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell\open\command" like some articles have suggested and put in my torrent client, but it does not fix the issue and chrome still stays the default protocol in settings.

  3. Windows 10 Disabled Magnet Links!?

    For some reason ever since an update 2 days ago, I am unable to open magnet links in Chrome, FireFox and Edge, and using the clients BitTorrent and uTorrent.

    It says there is no protocol apparently, but I have never had a problem with magnet links before this update. I have tried something with Chrome where you can change a setting in it, but it doesn't work with any software that I currently have period anyway.

    Another thing is that when I open a magnet link with Edge, it tries to get me to download a torrent software from the store, but doesn't let me choose the default program to open it with at all, which it should do.

    Can anyone please explain this to me?
