Pray tell, how is this different in Windows 11?
Very.  There is no unitary way to choose the default web browser at this time.  It's a file-type by file-type affair.

The outcry about this has been significant, and I suspect that a patch will eventually be forthcoming that makes choosing a default web browser under Windows 11 directly analogous to the way it is under Windows 10.  I have no idea who made the decision to remove this for the debut of Windows 11.  It was an insanely stupid change to the default apps user interface.
