I never use Edge or Bing, I only use Opera and now they are opening 2 or 3 times per day without me doing anything.

  • I have an HP 64-bit laptop running Windows 10 Home, 12gb memory, 2T hard drive.
    I only use Opera as I'm trying to stay away from MS. Now when I do a search in Opera for something, even if I select something off my Speed Dial, that will open correctly as does the search BUT at the same time an Edge window opens with Bing as a search engine (I have Opera set to Google) and it takes me to this screen. It's becoming a real PIA.
    Do you have any suggestions about how to prevent this from happening? Thanks for your help.

  • First we would need to know how did you manage to do that.

    Try checking in handlers section in Opera's settings page if there isn't anything related to Edge there.

  • What build of Windows 10? I recall reading that some of the pre-release builds were trying to force people to use Edge; I have yet to encounter it myself on my own (HP) laptop but an article talked about them changing people's default browser and displaying a dialog to discourage you from even installing another browser.

    Alternatively you have some malware trying to redirect your searches, but somehow it is opening the wrong browser.
