The next big Microsoft Windows update is coming in late 2021. Alongside a new interface, it will also bring a handful of exciting features, including compatibility with Android apps, better multitasking and more. Despite all the good stuff, it looks like there will be something that might frustrate you when you're experiencing it, which is the Windows 11 update will make setting default web browser difficult.

In Windows 11, setting the default browser is advised to be done the first time when a new browser is installed. If you missed it, then you'll probably get a hard time afterwards. To change the default browser, you will have to set it by file or link type instead of a single switch. As most of us prefer Google Chrome, meaning that we'll need to change file type for HTM, HTML, PDF, SHTML, SVG, WEBP, XHT, XHTML, FTP, HTTP, and HTTPS.

It looks like Microsoft is trying to "encourage" users to stick with its Edge browser in the upcoming update. Not only is the company making the setting difficult, but it's also said that the operating system has been ignoring default browser choices in its search experience in Windows 10.
