    Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11


    I play a game that when I click on a link in the Chat it opens my browser and opens it directly to the link, but my Default browser is Microsoft Edge but, it always opens for me Internet Explorer 11.
    Can anyone help me in this please?

    Hello Rip,

    See if using OPTON SIX in the tutorial below to select Microsoft Edge, and click/tap on Set this program as default may help. It will set Microsoft Edge as the default program for all supported file associations.

    Just to verify, when you look in Default Programs in that option in the tutorial I posted, does it show "This program as 9 out of 9 defaults" for Microsoft Edge indicating that all supported file types are associated?

I ran CCleaner today (Great program by the way!), like I do every couple weeks, and it said that edge and internet explorer needed to close to finish. Thing is, I use neither. So Do they auto run in the background? How can I keep them from starting?
