Cannot open Edge from toolbar - always goes to Explorer

December 24, 2016 at 01:48:10
Specs: Windows 10, 4G
Anyone know how I can stop Explorer from opening when I use the search box in Win10 toolbar?

It has suddenly decided not to use Edge, I have changed the default setting, and looking for a way to change it, but no luck.


Thanks

Make Edge your default browser, like this:

Go to Settings via Windows icon bottom left, then choose System. On the left choose "Default apps". Scroll down to your current default browser (internet Explorer) then choose Edge from the list.

Any changes you've made will automatically be saved.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You should be able to right click one of the files in question, choose "Open With" and select Edge instead of Internet Explorer.

In order for us to better help let us have the file name and extension of one of the files that is misbehaving.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It sounds like the poster might not be dealing with files at all,
just search requests.
