Have a Question?
One of our customers logged into Remote Technical Support with a Windows 10 problem. The issue: even though Google Chrome was their default browser, every time they brought their computer out of sleep, Microsoft Edge opened. They found this very annoying!
What They Tried
Our customer tried changing Power Settings, including Advanced Settings, but nothing worked. They reset Google Chrome as their default browser but the issue continued. No matter what they tried, Microsoft Edge still opened when they brought the computer out of sleep.
The Solution To “Microsoft Edge Opens After Sleep”
If you search for this issue, you’ll find lots of so-called solutions. We found only one that works for sure. It involves the Windows 10 Registry thus I have to share some caution statements.
Now that you’ve been warned, here’s the Registry hack to fix the issue where Microsoft Edge opens after sleep:
- Navigate to THIS area of the Registry.
- Change the Registry Key from 1 to 0.
- Close the Registry.
- Reboot your computer.
What To Do If The Issue Remains
