    Microsoft Edge is the default web browser on Microsoft 10 S

    Are there any defaults that I cannot change on my Windows 10 S PC?

    "Yes, Microsoft Edge is the default web browser on Microsoft 10 S. You are able to download another browser that might be available from the Windows Store, but Microsoft Edge will remain the default if, for example, you open an .htm file. Additionally, the default search provider in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer cannot be changed."

      - Yes m'lud, it is indeed true, because... Edge is integrated into the cloud!

      - Oh that's okay then, do carry on. Not at all like IE is integrated into the OS from a few years back.

      Oh is this true? I can't believe this as I really not aware of this till now. I'm using Windows 10 but I've downloaded Chrome and using the later without any interruption. So, as I didn't open any attached files such as .htm until now then I should agree with you. Thanks!

        You can change the default browser in Windows 10—10 S is another version.

    Didn't Microsoft get in trouble for this 5 years ago? European competition laws or something... I forget. I need more coffee

    Is it better than IE or just up to it.

      It's essentially IE 2.0, even though they still ship the old one for some reason.
