Hi, recently I noticed that Opera GX was no longer listed as my default browser for some reason. Before, I had it set to default but something changed the default browser back to IE.
The weird thing is that when I try to make GX my default browser, either by the browser settings, nothing happens. When I try to go through the default programs menu in Windows, GX doesn't even show up as an option there.
I ended up temporarily setting Firefox as my default browser for now but I primarily use GX which is why I'm hoping to be able to figure this issue out. Is there anything I can try? I also recently ran a virus scan to make sure that I didn't pick something up that changed things. I also haven't changed any OS settings recently and in terms of browser settings, I didn't touch any flags or advanced settings for quite some time.
Any suggestions to try? Thanks in advance!
