    Default Why I cant change the default browser?

    Honestly, I dont like IE 10 and I tried to change Google chrome to be the default browser.

    Control panel > default programs > set your default programs > select google chrome > ok

    But nothing changed. Any suggestion? Thanks.

    I believe you have to set or associate a file type to a particular program, then set .htm and .html to your browser of choice. Win 8 CP is still a beta OS and as such MS has sort of locked certain portions and not made it as easy to change them. Try this and see if it works.

    You can also grab favorite links and drag and drop them onto the Google icon. I believe this will also work.

    Perhaps TechnoMage will step in here. He has successfully accomplished this I believe.
