Have windows 10. Do not want to use Edge browser. Have made IE my default browser.

Each time that I click on a embedded application link, e.g. in an email, I get a nag screen that asks me if want to use "IE" as my default app. I must select yes in order to use.

I would like to instruct windows 10 to do my bidding. The nag screen is not enhancing my calm. I have gone into each application instructing it that IE is my default as well as in control panel and msconfig.

Any ideas, please.

Thanks. T
