With the latest Windows 11 update available as a mandatory security update, it’s now easier than ever to change the system’s default browser. In June 2021, Microsoft made a change that caused a reaction on the Windows 11 side. The company now seems to have stepped back from this move.
In Windows operating system, Edge browser was previously selected by default. Later, we could easily set different browsers like Chrome, Opera or Firefox as default. In the early days of Windows 11, this situation had completely changed. In other words, users had to manually save their Chrome or Firefox preferences for web protocols like HTTP or HTTP and popular web file extensions like .HTML, .HTM.
Microsoft says it’s taking all criticism into account, and this change was reverted with the April 2022 cumulative update. With Windows 11 KB5012592 you can now easily switch between Microsoft Edge and other browsers with one click. There’s also a new option that lets you change the default browser for all known web protocols and file extensions.
