Windows 10: Doesn't work Solved

    Doesn't work

    I installed 10 this morning - started last night and went to bed with it saying "restarting", got up this morning and it was still the same. shut down and restarted and it spent another 2 hrs installing.

    I have now spent over an hr trying to make google my default search engine - not one of the suggestions when I do a search will work because what they say in the windows that come up are not there. There is no "search" when I use tools and not three dots when I go to google search window.

    I understand MS will do everything it can to not let people use anything except MS programs but this is ridiculous.

    Now do I make google my default search engine?

    tks. jb

    Once you know where to look its not that hard.

    Open the new Settings App
    type Default and click on Default App Settings
    Scroll down the list on the right hand side until you see Web browser
    click on the square and Chrome should appear in the list of programs.
