This is an unnecessarily long process that makes setting up Windows 11 confusing.

Microsoft is finally addressing some of these criticisms. V Friday (via ), the company said it “reaffirms our longstanding approach to putting people in control of their Windows PC experience.” Microsoft has announced a feature that it says will allow Windows 11 users to control changes to their default apps.
