    Get Cortana to use Google Chrome


    Hello!

    I've had this fixed before, simply by having Chrome as default browser, but now it doesn't really work and I don't know why. Tried putting Edge back as default then Chrome again, even used the control panel for it but with no luck.

    It's MS's deliberate design choice and decision. Previously it was possible to change the browser Cortana used- then MS changed that. Please mark solved if that's so- thanks.
