Hello,

Go to the browser that you want to make your default. Normally, they will prompt you asking if you want to set them to default. If not, go into the settings and look for the option there. For example, for Internet Explorer if you click on the Gear icon and select Internet Options, under the Programs tab there will be a button that allows you to make it your default browser.
