Microsoft – EU: stops pushing Windows 11 users to Edge

Microsoft will finally stop force Windows 11 users in Europe to use Edge if they click a link from the Windows Widgets panel or from search results.

The company has started testing the upcoming Windows 11 changes in recent beta versions of the operating system, but the specific changes are limited to countries within the European Economic Area (EEA).

"In the European Economic Area (EEA), Windows system components will use the default browser to open links," reads a change note from a version of Windows 11 released to Dev Channel testers last month.

Microsoft as you may know overrides the default browser options in the Windows 10 search experience and taskbar widgets by forcing users to open Edge when they click a link instead of opening their default browser.

Windows 11 continued this behavior, with search still forcing users to open Edge. A new dedicated widgets area featuring the company's new operating system also ignores it browser setting. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
