    Frankly I'm tired of all the browsers and other programs fighting and reminding you that they want to be the "default" program. I wish they would all just shut up and let me choose what I want in peace. But like I said above, it's about the money to be gained by being the default.

    I'm sure they do but the LOL part to me was that here he has a brand new operating system, brand new browser to try out and the very first thing he wants to do and does is to download Chrome. (which in all honestly I would have done to if I hadn't done the upgrade that left my Chrome sitting just fine)

    I seem to remember seeing a plethora of "do not ask me again" toggle boxes and buttons...

    Yes I thought the Browser wars would be over by now.

    And those users will never figure anything out. That's why they have the government to do it for them.

Also when I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 where I had Firefox as my default browser the migration did not keep that preference and If you choose the default setup preferences it will make Edge the default browser.
    First time I launched Firefox after upgrading to 10 it asked as I thought it would if I would like to make it my default browser. Been that way ever since.

    Did you set as a default without having to going into the settings? If yes, it was either fluke or you are using an older preview build.

    I'll be danged. I thought I had tried that already but just did it (again??) and you are correct. I set Seamonkey as default browser and Cortana opened it to do the web search.

    Thanks
