Is your edge browser broken?  You try using cortana, or other windows functions, only to find them intrinsically linked to edge... what do you?  You go around it.  

Enter: The Edge Deflector on GitHub.  


It's super straight forward:  (Install it, then locate the executable in your Program Files (x86) folder, then run it as administrator.  You will get a pop up, select open with Edge Deflector, then select the option to Always use it.  Once you have clicked OK, the program will do the job!  Edge Deflector now re-directs all Cortana and other windows edge functionality to my default (other) browser.

System requirements: Windows 10, your favorite web browser


  1. Download the latest version of EdgeDeflector.exe from GitHub releases
  2. Copy the downloaded executable to C:\Program Files\ or anywhere else it can be stored permanently
  3. Run the program once to configure your system
  4. Choose EdgeDeflector and Always use this app in the dialog
