    See if this will help you with the default apps. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html But, I doubt you can get rid of explorer.

    I have a feeling the OP is actually talking about Edge.

    You guys may be right, it's about Edge not Explorer. But, when the default browser is set, it should take care of Edge too if something else is chosen.

    Yes. Question is, does the OP know how to choose another default browser ?
    He asks about Menu Bar. Obviously he has IE in mind.

    just found it - didn't realize there was a thing called edge - oh why oh why do tech companies have to develop redundant apps?

    You said you never use IE.
    Then which browser do you have in mind to replace Edge as your default browser ?
    It's easy to show you how to install the browser you want and set it as default. But you have to yell us which browser.
