    Windows 10 Upgrade


    Hi,
    I just upgraded Windows 10 today (1.1.2016).
    The upgrade took a very long time.
    According to the notice after the upgrade, no files would be changed.
    But after the upgrade, some of the icons on my desktop were changed from Firefox type to IE.
    I tried to use the Firefox Browser's default option to change the default browser to Firefox but instead of accepting my click, a Microsoft notification opened up showing the a list of settings.
    But Firefox was not among them.
    So, how do I make Firefox my default browser again?
    In fact, the upgrade is regressive rather than progressive, causing frustration when there was none before.
    Thank you.
    Regards,
