    It auto launches windows store app..

    When it launches, all my audio from other apps gets diverted to this app

    I want to
    1. reset this protocol handler on chrome to stop it auto launching the windows store
    2. stop the windows store app from stealing the sound card audio

    Hi madmax2.

    Chrome, can't be sure but I would check Content settings.

    Click three dots upper right, click settings, click three bars upper left, click Advanced, click Privacy and Security, click Content Settings. First I would look at Handlers.

    On sound, click on speaker is systray, playback devices, click on your playback device, click on properties, click on advance tab, uncheck "Allow applications to to exclusive.... ". Note your changes so you can reset.
