Tip of the Week: Change Your Default Web Browser

Tip of the Week: Change Your Default Web Browser

When it comes to technology, we all have our preferred ways of doing things. On a computer, you have several ways of accessing the Internet, and we are sure you have your preferred web browsers for accessing it all. Let’s go over how you can ensure that your computer knows what your preferred web 0browser is by switching the default browser settings for your Windows PC.

How to Change Your Default Web Browser

Changing your default web browser is just as easy as changing any other default application on your desktop. To get started, all you have to do is open your Settings. You can do so by either searching for the application in the search bar, or you can use the keyboard shortcut Windows+i.

From here, you should click on the Apps section. You should see an option for Default Apps on the left side of the screen. On the right side of the screen, you should see another option for Web Browser. When you click on it, there will be a menu for choosing your default application. Simply select the one you want to use, and you’re all set!

It should also be noted that when you open a web browser that isn’t your current default web browser, it might prompt you to make the change right then and there. We recommend picking one that you are most comfortable with, especially considering the fact that you will likely be using the Internet a lot. Choosing the right browser can also be a big deal if your company uses a lot of different cloud-based applications.

What are some good options for web browsers? Most Windows PCs come with Microsoft Edge, but if you aren’t feeling it, you can try Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
