Firefox is excited to bring all that you love about its browser to Windows 10. When you upgrade to the new Windows 10 or get a device that already has it installed, you may be surprised to find that your default browser is set to Microsoft Edge by Windows.
Microsoft has changed how to set default applications in Windows 10 and to help with the process, Firefox have illustrated below all the steps you need to set or change your default back to your intended choice.
- When you open browser for the first time, you will be asked if you’d like to make it your default browser. To do so, click the “Use Firefox as my default browser” button.
- The Windows Settings app will open with the Choose default apps screen. Scroll down and click the entry under Web browser. The Web browser icon will say either “Microsoft Edge” or “Choose your default browser”. It may not be intuitive, but you need to click on the Microsoft Edge logo to open the window that will let you choose another Web browser as your default.
- This will open the Choose an app screen. Click Firefox in the list to set it as the default browser.
- Firefox is now listed as your default browser. Close the window to save your changes.
Here’s a video walkthrough of this process.
