Here's an odd issue I'm running into. Whenever I'm trying in a website in Microsoft Edge and press enter, Internet Explorer opens the page (not Edge). Edge is currently my default browser. What should I do here?

Check Settings >> Default Apps and if you find Edge as your default browser, try change it to something else and make it back again as default. Also you can check default apps for extensions as html, htm, etc..

    1. Open Edge.
    2. Tap the three-dot menu button on the top right on any page that opens in Internet Explorer
    3. See if "Open With Internet Explorer" is selected by accident.

    Check whether IE sets as the default browser. If yes, change it to Edge by opening up the settings.

    If you are not so comfortable to do all of these & if you are flexible, you can download/install Firefox, which is quiet easy to set as default browser when you open Firefox at very first time. Also f there are bookmarks in IE/Edge, you can import them easily.

    Edge as a browser still has too many bugs for my liking. I still prefer Firefox and Chrome over any of Microsoft's offerings. Is there a reason you are choosing Edge? I know some applications and site may be optimized for a specific browser.
