    Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "iexplore" into the "Run" box and click "OK". When Internet Explorer starts, click "Tools", "Internet Options", "Programs" and in the "Opening Internet Explorer" box, select "Make Internet Explorer the default browser" and click "OK".

    Click the settings gear / cog icon
    Click Apps
    Left column click Default Apps
    Scroll down to Web browser
    Click it and select I.E.
    and Change anyway.
    That should do it
