When you get a new Windows laptop, it's important to customize its settings and features to suit your needs. One such setting is selecting a default browser for opening web pages.

By default, Microsoft Edge is usually set as the default browser on Windows, but many users prefer other options like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. If you want to change the default browser, you'll need to install your preferred browser first. Once installed, you can choose it as your default browser and even customize the types of files it can open.

Here's a step-by-step guide on changing your default browser in Windows:

  1. Open the Start menu, click on Settings, then go to Apps and choose Default apps.
  2. Look for your preferred browser from the list.
  3. Click on "Set default" next to your chosen browser.

 

Requirements and Tools:

  • Windows operating system.
  • Your preferred browser should already be installed on your device.

 

Step-by-Step Guide:

 

1. Open the Start menu and click on Settings.

2. Go to Apps and select Default apps.


 

 

3. Scroll down and find your preferred browser from the list.

 

 


4. Click on your chosen browser, and it will take you to a menu specific to that browser.

 

 

5. Click on the "Set default" button located at the top right corner of the menu screen. This will set your chosen browser as the default option for opening .HTM and .HTML files, which includes most webpages. You can also choose to open other file types, such as PDF files, with your default browser from this menu.

 

Final Thoughts:


To change your default browser settings, access the Settings menu from the Start menu, go to Apps, and then select Default apps. From there, locate your preferred browser, select it, and click on "Set default". The advantage is that you can also choose additional file types to open with your newly set default browser.
