It was easy in Windows 10 to set Chrome default browser but in Windows 11 changing the default apps is a bit tricky. Microsoft just confusing the Windows 11 users or want to make it difficult to use the Google chrome. I’m sure making a separate option for opening deferent file format is a way of forcing users to use the Edge browser. Anyway the Edge browser is supper fast in Windows 11 and I really like it…
