Set Your Default Web Browser In Windows 7 - 8 & 10 x
Set Your Default Web Browser in Windows 7 through 10
This is easy. But sometimes it is not known to all.
YOU CAN SET YOUR BROWSER AS DEFAULT BROWSER SO every time you open your favorite web browser in Windows 7, 8 or 10 your browser will be there when you need it.
Windows 10 comes with Internet Explorer browser and the newest Internet Web Browser: EDGE
Some people who upgrade to Windows 10 may prefer another browser, one that is familiar and easy to use that has been their browser of choice over the years and is dependable and good enough for them to use besides the latest Edge browser, just because of ease of use and basic familiarity. I understand this as I myself have used Netscape in early years and moved up to using Firefox, Chrome & SeaMonkey (browser suite).
When a browser you are using is not set as the default browser in Windows 10 for instance, it will prompt you to set it as the default browser. If you are prompted to allow for instance, Opera, to be your default web browser or Firefox, you can do this, but the next time you decide to open an alternative web browser in your Windows computer, that browser might also prompt you to set it as the default browser, but it will not become the default browser automatically. You can close a browser that has prompted you to set as default but you can chose to ignore the prompt and just close the browser and the next time you open your default browser, it will not prompt you to do anything except ask you if you want to close all tabs, which is usual for any browser that has open tabs in multiples.
A browser can be setup to open a new tab in the SAME WINDOW or open a new tab in a DIFFERENT or separate WINDOW.
