To set a browser as your default browser means that the entire link from onward you’ll open will show up in that only.

1. Press the welcome key +Q.

2. To open default program windows, type default and press enter.

3. Click on Google Chrome.

4. Select Set this program as default.

5. Click on OK.

Now whenever you will open a link, it will open with Google Chrome.

How To Make Google Default Browser In Windows 8?

If you have Microsoft Windows 8 and you want to set a default web browser like setting Google Chrome as the default browser, here’s how. In Windows 8, Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 is the default web browser and it has two versions: one for the Metro UI and the other is for the desktop.

If you don’t like using Microsoft Internet Explorer like me when surfing the internet, you can always install a different web browser like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, or Opera. But there seems to be a problem when setting the browser as the default web browser during the installation because it doesn’t seem to work especially for the Google Chrome web browser.

It seems Microsoft simply ignores this option and persists on setting Microsoft Internet Explorer as the default web browser. Now, to set Google Chrome and any other browser as the default web browser in Windows 8, go to “Control Panel,” “Default Programs,” and then “Set your default programs.”

Windows 8 set default programs

On the next screen, select Google Chrome on the left pane then click “Set this program as default.” This will then set Google Chrome as the default web browser in Windows 8.
