Microsoft announced its Windows 11 An operating system (OS) with many new and improved features, but it feels like every time we take a few steps forward, we also take a step back.According to a Report from the edge, Microsoft is increasing the difficulty of changing the default Web browser in the Windows 11 operating system.
The default browser selection in the operating system should be a simple solution. After installing the Windows operating system, Microsoft sets the Edge browser as your default option until you select any other option later, usually Chrome or Firefox. This is how it worked before Windows 11.
In the current Windows 10 operating system, to change the default browser application, you only need to navigate to the “Start” menu, type “default application”, find the web browser drop-down menu, and then select the desired for all browsing tasks default browser. However, this is not how it works in Windows 11.
In Windows 11, if you do not toggle the “Always use this application” box when opening the link for the first time, Microsoft will only default everything to the Edge browser. Changing this is not easy. Unlike Windows 10, the new Windows 11 does not have an option to select a browser for all content, but splits it by file. You must select the default application to open all files in HTM, HTML, PDF, SHTML, SVG, WEBP, XHT, XHTML, FTP, HTTP, and HTTPS formats. This means that the process of selecting the default settings is very long and may not be known to many people.
This process is not very friendly, especially for people who are not tech-savvy.Microsoft Already noticed “For Windows 11, we are implementing customer feedback to customize and control default values at a more fine-grained level, eliminate application categories and promote all applications to the forefront of the default value experience,” went on to say that the company continues to learn from the community And improve the Windows 11 experience.
According to its statement, it is clear that the separation of all these changes is imminent, but as we have seen in Windows 10, it would be better to have a simple switch.
