Hi. I've just updated Edge to the latest version (123.0.2420.53). On restarting the browser a message urging me to make Edge my default browser - my default browser is currently Chrome appears. The options shown are Confirm ( to change default) or Set Later, which I don't want to do. If I simply close the box will this stop the nag box reappearing? Sorry if this is a basic question but thanks anyway.

Hi Mitch. Sorry no one has answered. I just saw your post.
When I use Edge, I may see that popup once in a blue moon about making Edge my default but it is not often.
I have Firefox set as my default browser for file types .htm and .html. (.pdf too if you don't use a third party pdf app) Settings>apps>default apps>scroll all the way to bottom and select "choose defaults by file type" and select Chrome as default for each of those ltypes. See if that makes a difference.

@Mitch

I just blocked EDGE and EDGE Updater in my Bitdefender firewall.
After that, EDGE just went running away... crying for it's mommy. :cool:


I don't think it's possible to permanently block EDGE in the Microsoft firewall.
MS will probably just unblock it, again, after the next update or three.

    Still assembled, still runs. Haven't turned it on for 13 years?
Hi Glasskuter & Ghot. I hadn't seen these popups for a while but since Edge version 123 and the subsequent updates to this, there's been a rash of them. Today's popups have even removed the close box X and the only options are Confirm or Not Now. Seems they can't take No for a answer. Chrome is already set as default for pdf. Probably have to keep swatting them away. Thanks again.
