Microsoft has made it impossible to select a default browser other than Edge in Windows 11. One can choose “file handlers” for https or http, but there are also Microsoft-edge URLs that will not open in anything except Edge. Methods for circumventing this have been shut down by the company. Didn’t they face antitrust action and fines for this behavior before? Yup, they did. Guess they assume everybody forgot.

This is a very informative article:

That's OK, my new Surface Pro 7 (i7, 16G Ram, 256G SSD) still doesn't know if it can run Windows 11. Seriously, if that thing can't run it, what can?

Haven't experience the issue with Edge yet, but still setting it up and will load Chrome when I get a chance.

They could teach Apple a thing or two about botching a rollout.
