    Setting defaults in Windows 10

    I believe that I have MS figured out. There is something inWindows 10 that I thought was a bug. I discovered today that is not a bug, butitís the way that MS wants it. I have not been that happy with Windows Edge soI used IE as my default browser and I set everything so that my default browserwas indeed IE. But whenever I click on a link it asks me if I want IE or Edge.No matter how many times I set it as IE to be the default. Today I decided togive Edge another try, so I set things up so that Edge is indeed the default.Guess what. It no longer asks if I want Edge it automatically opens Edge as thedefault.

    I use Firefox and set it as default and it never prompts me for what to use. I guess M$ is going to do away with IE soon.

    I wonder if anyone else has run into the same issue as I have.
