    Trying to set Opera as web browser in default app

    For the last two hours I have been trying to set Opera as web browser in default app under Default Apps in Settings. The only web browser is working with Microsoft Edge not other web browser. I am not sure how can I make Opera as default and rather use this not Microsoft Edge. Any idea how to get this browser work as default?

    Thank you,

    I fixed it by this method: Start -> Settings -> System -> Default Apps -> Set Defaults by App, click on Opera, then click "Set this program as default".

    After that Windows 10 remembered my setting and used Opera as the default browser.

    That's the trick to fix.
