Microsoft just changed the most controversial design touch of Windows 11

Microsoft just changed the most controversial design touch of Windows 11

From the macOS-inspired flat design to the central Start menu, a lot of Windows 11’s features have pissed off users since its unveiling last year. But arguably the most controversial was the downright ridiculous way to change the default web browser.

You thought changing the browser would be as simple as one click, right? You certainly wouldn’t be expected to choose the preference for each file type, would you? You wouldn’t expect to be well-armed to grow with Microsoft Edge, would you? Well, that’s exactly the situation Windows 11 users have found themselves in, until this week.

Not only will each extension (like .html and .pdf) require individual customization of a browser, but pretty much every web link built into Windows itself will open Microsoft Edge. This meant that the Start menu search bar was pretty much useless, for example, for Chrome users (I’ve heard there are quite a few of them).
