Key notes

  • The Windows OS is known for annoying users with using Edge as the default browser.
  • However, using MSEdgeRedirect will help you set whatever browser you want to use.
  • MSEdgeRedirect has now been updated to version and you can check it out here.

If you are absolutely sick and tired of Windows 10 or Windows 11 forcing you to use Edge as the default browser, MSEdgeRedirect is the app you want by your side.

Why, well, because it can make Microsoft’s operating system respect your default browser choice and redirect links from Widgets, Search, and other parts of Windows to Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, or others.

And, if you are already using MSEdgeRedirect, you should know that the app received an update to version with a bunch of various fixes and improvements.
