    Windows 10 not allowing to change default browser to google chrome

    I recently re-installed windows 10. Have tried every way to change default browser from Edge to Chrome, to no avail. Even changed the default by file type, HTML, Htm, to open with google chrome. Under Apps & Features, google is listed as my browser, but in Default apps-Web browser-choose default, I can click on google chrome till the cows come home and no sale. Very frustrated, have never like Edge. What is my next move? Even Apps by protocol has google chrome listed but it still won't respond.

    Haven't had the need, but this worked before.

    Open Control Panel, type default programs in search box (upper rt corner), click Set Default Programs.

    Scroll down and you will see Edge listed. Click to change.
