Setting Google Chrome as the Default Browser
Setting Google Chrome as the default browser on Windows 11 is not the most simple as Windows no longer has easy-to-use settings that help with setting it as the main explorer of choice. Below are just some of the steps that you can try to set Google Chrome up as your main browser.
- Firstly, Open Google Chrome then click the 3 vertical dots on the top right of your screen
- Click Setting
- Go to Default Browser then Make Default
- Click Apps when the window opens then Default Apps on the right
- Look for Google Chrome then change all the browsers there to Chrome
Only change the parts where you see other browser icons to Google Chrome from the drop list, this should make Chrome your default explorer and everything you open that should redirect you to a browser will open Google Chrome.
