    Had same issue and this worked for me.




    You may want to try setting it manually through Windows. This is done by doing the following:
    • Open the Control Panel
    • Go to Programs > Default Programs >Set Default Programs
    • Once the list populates, find Google Chrome
    • Select it and then press the "Set as Default" button

    Why on Gods Earth when asked by Windows 10 to set a default and if it is not what Microsoft wants yopu to enter, they just choose to ignore you. Very BAD user experience and some programmer out there needs to be fired ASAP.
