If you perform a clean install of Windows 10, you shouldn’t be too surprised that Microsoft Edge is chosen as your default web browser. After all, it’s the only browser installed by default (well, I guess you could also count the old and decrepit Internet Explorer, which still lingers around for compatibility purposes). But when performing an upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10, you would expect for the installer to retain your preferences for the default web browser. Unfortunately, expectations don’t often match reality. If you have a competing browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome set as your default browser before upgrading to Window 10, this selection will be overridden... Read more...

We already knew that Windows 10 would be available as a free upgrade to existing Windows 7 or Windows 8 users with a valid license. The only other stipulation is that in order to receive the Windows 10 upgrade for free, you have to download the operating system from Microsoft by July 29, 2016 — marking exactly one year from the retail release of the operating system.

Microsoft’s Gabe Aul has given final confirmation that anyone that installs the Windows 10 Insider Preview (the most recent version released to testers... Read more...
