    As of today you can't change Cortana to open your default browser. It only opens Edge. Perhaps someone could find a way to change this back? :worthy::worthy::worthy:

    Hummmm. thinking so....
    Instead of competing with the FF and chrome browser MS is just selling bread with stale butter..
    I am thinking how European Union editions of windows 10 will use cortana?

    Just clean your ISO from both cortana and edge.

    Use Classic Shell and Vivaldi and You'll be the happiest man in the world :biggrin:

    This is the attitude at M$:
    so bend over dhjohns, and take it like an M$ man, because it's just designed to do more for you! (sarcasm)

    I don't see anything so much wrong about prioritizing Windows Search engine or browser in Windows OS.

    My Cortana doesn't understand me when I talk to her and refuses to let me type to her since today, but I can't do a re-boot atm to check if it's a bug or not, because I have a backup running.

    Edge is not perfect yet, but not a complete disaster either.

    There seems to be no way around it (yet).

    :)

    I expect that the EU anti competition N̶a̶z̶i̶s̶ J̶i̶h̶a̶d̶i̶s̶t̶s̶ commission will quickly weigh in on this subject and MS will be forced to back down.

    I think they are way better than American authorities that keeps both the eyes closed just because Apple,MS and Google are keeping the american economy afloat.

    Competition is a good thing, but must be fair and reciprocal, no matter if you live in Connecticut or in Finland
