Rival Browsers Are Frustrated With Microsoft's Default Browser Options On Windows 11

Rival browsers are frustrated with Microsoft’s default browser options.

They made it easier to switch but they are still not convinced.

With a single click users can once again change their default browser on Windows 11.

Users are able to switch easily between which browser is set to default, once installed.

It was available on Windows 10.

Users were required to set their browser of choice for every file-type before the update.

It would cause fewer users to switch to any other browser, many argued.

Now they are offering a simpler switch but for that you have to update.

'2022-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5011563), check your Windows Update for that.

This should apply to all users, not just the ones who are technically competent enough to realize that they need to install an optional update, and know how to actually do so. It should be installed for all users, they said.

People should have the ability to simply and easily set defaults and all operating systems should offer official developer support for default status, they said.
