Windows 11 finally change browser with one click

Microsoft finally makes it easy to change the default browser in Windows 11. A new update (KB5011563) launched this week allows Windows 11 users to change their default browser with one click.

The new one-click browser switching method is available for all Windows 11 users.

Initially, Windows 11 was released without making it easy to switch between the default browsers, which was very simple in Windows 10.

Microsoft was forcing its users Windows 11 to change too many file extensions or protocol operators for HTTP, HTTPS, .HTML, and .HTM to eventually switch browsers.

The company of course defended its decision to make it more difficult to switch between Windows 11 defaults, but competing browser makers such as Mozilla, Brave, and even Chrome criticized Microsoft's approach.

In the latest Windows 11 update, from the Default applications section, you can simply search for the browser that interests you. A button then appears asking if you want to set it as the default. The whole process is done with a single click, no relation to the way the company used before.

Microsoft seems to have listened to the comments and criticism of the changes it made to Windows 11. The company claims that it continues to improve Windows 11 every month, with updates like this or bigger with improvements to Android applications and the taskbar.

Microsoft now plans to present in detail all the changes in Windows 11 at an event on April 5.
