Q. Microsoft Edge keeps appearing when I select a URL. Any ideas on a fix so that my default browser setting works the way I think it should?
A. This week’s question comes from a reader after they saw last week’s newsletter about Microsoft testing out a pop-up when users install an alternative browser on Windows 10. They shared that this system is running the production release of Windows 10 Home and not participating in Windows Insider early build/app releases.
I have no doubt our reader knows about setting defaults in Windows 10 but for posterity, I am going to go ahead and document that process here to get us started with the discussion about this error.
Note: Your choice of web browsers, such as Chrome or Firefox, must already be installed before you begin this process.
