So my desktop was just upgraded to Windows 10, and now I seem to get MS Edge acting as my default browser.....but not all the time? It's a little confusing. I prefer Chrome as my overall browser and DuckDuckGo as my search engine. It's all so integrated/confusing to me that I'm not quite sure exactly what's what, but I do know that I do NOT want MS Edge. Can I safely just delete it?

Unfortunately it can't be uninstalled. Make sure you set Chrome as your default browser in settings. Then make your what app you want chrome to open.

Also be sure to set you wanted search engine, or else you will be using Bing!

Go to Start > Settings > Apps > Default Apps. Then go to Web Browser in the list and change it to Chrome.

Then in Chrome, go to the three dots top right > Settings. Then click on Search Engine and change the drop down to Duck Duck Go:

Thank you! I appreciate getting a straight-ahead, "do this, then this" response that solves an issue. Much appreciated!
