Re: Windows 10 Edge

What does this have to do with Norton? It is in your Windows 10 settings. Just Google it.

In Windows 10, go into Windows Settings > System > Default Apps.  Click on the current web browser shown, and change it to Chrome from the displayed list.

Hi surfergirl,

You won't have ID Safe and Norton won't block known phishing and malicious sites but Edge has Smart Screen built in that already does that.  Norton does scan any files you download with Edge so you shouldn't have any issues.

My default browser is Edge, although I prefer Cyberfox and Firefox, I do at times use Edge.

I hope that helps.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Norton will still protect your PC. Like Krusty stated you won't have the Norton toolbar. I use nothing but Chrome. It's easier, faster, more secure and fully customizable.

@surfergirlGG2,

Yr Q: "how to make chrome the (default) web browser"?

My A: Run yr Chrome > click on the blue "Set as default" button > when the Settings is loaded, scroll down to the Web browser section > choose Chrome as the default browser.

This method too works when U want to set Firefox as the default web tool, if you want to give Firefox a go later, or if you just change yr mind.

As for compatibility of Norton web apps, you may also review this KB (Last modified: 12/22/2016).

  • Is Microsoft Edge compatible with Norton Identity Safe?
  • Change your default browser

Thx :)
