    Windows 10

    Can't use any other browser than Edge.

    Hey guys! everything was fine with windows 10 since the beginning , except since last week. I cant connect to the internet with chrome or any other application using the internet ( steam, league of legends etc). I did some research but couldn't find something that worked.

    Thank you!

    Hi, sorry to hear that. Are you using a laptop? A desktop? If you could complete your system specs, that would help. (Instructions in the tutorial section if you're unsure).

    How are you connected to the internet? Ethernet cable? WiFi?
    If you are using a router, can any other devices connect to that successfully?

    Since we don't know what state your internet connection is in, first right click the internet icon in your system tray, and Open Network and Sharing Centre. Please post a screenshot of that including your system tray internet icon.
    It should look sthg like this:

    Please right click the internet icon in your system tray again, click "Troubleshoot Problems" and report the outcome. Thanks.

    Do you know what changed last week that might have caused this?
    Do you have any system restore points before the date you first noticed this?
    Do you use disk imaging (which allows you to restore your PC to exactly how it was when you created the image and creates a backup at the same time)? Everyone needs to use this: Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper- freeware (+ commercial) - with their boot disk + large external backup storage medium.
