Microsoft has introduced the all new Microsoft Edge browser with Windows 10.

With regard to this, Mozilla CEO has also written an open letter to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, regarding this. You can read our article here. Check out the steps to change the default browser in Windows 10.

Steps to change your default browser from Microsoft Edge to some other in Windows 10

1. First of all when you download and install Google Chrome or Firefox in your Windows 10 computer, then you need to launch the browser. When the first time you launch the browser, you will be asked if you want to set it as your default browser. As soon as you tap yes, you will be redirected to the System page. You can perform this step by opening the System option of All Settings window.
