Microsoft has always spared no effort in various ways to promote users to switch to their own Edge browser, and Windows 11 is no exception. The current situation is that when you open a link outside the browser, you have to re-select the default browser for each newly encountered file type (.htm, .html, .shtml, etc.), and if you forget If you check “Always use this app”, you will have to reselect it every time you click on the link.
According to The Verge, in the new Insider build 22509 version, as long as you go to the Chrome (or other browser) default app settings page in the app settings in the settings, you will find that there is one more “set as default” By pressing the button, you can switch the default browsers for the http and https protocols, as well as the htm and html file types, to Chrome.
When it first launched, Microsoft said that this setting method allows users to have “more detailed control” on which browser to use for each file or protocol, but naturally it is not accidentally criticized by Opera, Firefox, and Chrome. It is believed that there is a suspicion of using the oligopoly of Windows 11 to carry out a monopoly, so Microsoft has to make concessions. Although I don’t know when it will come to the general version of Windows 11, it is not a too complicated feature. I think I should be able to see it soon.
