    Cannot change App Defaults

    I cannot change any of the App Defaults. Is there a solution for this? First, I don't like Edge and want to change the browser, but windows 10 will not change the default. Another default is for email. I want Outlook 2016 but, again can't change it. that is just 2 of many.

    Did you install the browser you want to use ? It will ask you if you want to use it as default.
