    Can't choose default app for protocol from PC


    Hi,

    I try to set utorrent as default app for magnet links. "Settings" though offers the current default, Torch, or to buy from the app store only, no option to choose from PC (screenshot 1)

    utorrent is fully capable of handling magnet; it is installed on my laptop and set as default app for .torrent files (screnshot 2).

    How can I set it for magnet too?
    Thanks a lot.

    I tried this before, but I use Brave not pure Chrome. This method doesn't apply.

    I posted this initially in 'General Support' because my question is about Windows 10:
    How to add a program from my laptop (this case utorrent) to the options for default to a protocol (this case magnet).
    Could somebody please tell me this?
    Thanks.
