    You need to associate something with Brave browser, like PDF, then it should pop up there.

    Failing that, you can choose the default browser in settings:

    You still need to do something, to make it trigger its existence. Like XnView, it can not be setup as a default Photo Viewer, unless you force Windows to acknowledge its existence. Just installing it will not do.
