Here’s the haps:
I’m enjoying the opportunity to use Mrs. Herb’s new computer but I’m not particularly enthralled with Windows 11. One thing I tried to do just now was to switch my default browser to Chrome. I don’t really dislike Edge but Chrome has all my stuff stored in it and syncs across devices. Edge can be set to do that but it’s a tedious, inconvenient process to copy everything over. Anyway, in Windows 11 you have to go into the settings and switch each file type individually. If you want Chrome to open web pages by default you have to go into settings, search for change default, then select each individual type of file you want to open with Chrome. .htm, .HTML, .mht, HTTP, HTTPS, and others I don’t recall off the top of my head. It used to be that you simply switch your default browser from one to the other and back, but not anymore. It’s a nuisance but I think if that’s the biggest problem I have in life I’m probably doing pretty good. It’s just annoying that you have gotten so big for your britches, Microsoft that you think you can do what you want with impunity.
