    Stop pop-up in Internet Explorer?

    I recently purchase a new laptop with windows 10 installed. after changing the default browser to internet explorer, I get a pop up each time I click on a link stating "How do you want to open this" with internet explorer highlighted. There is also a box "always use this app" which can be checked.
    Even though I check the box before clicking ok, I continue to get this pop up. Do anyone know of a way to stop from getting this pop up

    Try going to Control Panel | Programs | Set your default programs. Find IE in the left column and click on it. In the right pane at the bottom click on "Set this program as default".
