How to set a default browser when Windows 10 won't let you

Microsoft wants to force you to use its products in Windows 10. So it can make it very difficult to set your default browser to anything but Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge.

I didn't want either of those, but found it difficult to change. Here's what worked for me:

1. Click on the Windows start icon on the bottom left.

2. Click on Settings -- the gear-like icon

3. Click on "System"

4. Click on "Default Apps"

5. On right side, scroll to the bottom and click on "Set Defaults by App"

6. Click on the browser you want, such as Chrome or Firefox

7. At the bottom, click on "Set this program as default."

Worked for me!
