Hi Guys


I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 and am slowly getting used to the system. I have one problem in that the default browser is Edge 12.1 and it is not compatible with Trusteer Rapport. I have talked to IBM and they say there are no plans to make it compatible.


I have what might be basic questions. I know how to make google chrome my default browser but how to I change it back to Edge in the future when Trusteer becomes available, and how will making Google my default browser interact with Cortana and other Windows 10 functions?

If you are wanting to have the best protection from malware while banking online then there is a much better way than relying on Trusteer.....a LIVE LINUX OS or a computer

using an installed Linux OS and used for nothing else but financial transactions. See articles in links below.

If you know how to make Google Chrome your default web browser, then it is the same process to make Edge your default web browser. It is so simple that you can change your default web browser in seconds and change it as often as you want.

Hi Cluless :)

To make Microsoft Edge your default browser (or any other browsers), enter app in your Start Menu and select Default app settings. Scroll down a bit until you see Web Browser, and select the one you want as the default.
