did you type in default programs in the search box








?
there you make the browser of your choice as the default browser if you have another installed.
but it won't show until you press enter on the edge browser. then the other browsers you have installed should show in a list.

well, it never did that before I disabled UI Automation.
And, it speaks a shortcut alt+Shift+a and says go to Settings; which does nothing.
So I will ignore it, but it is quite annoying.
It's interesting that I have never had an issue with Firefox, but found Chrome flakey.
O well.

I f I am on a website in Edge and I don’t like something I simply press Alt + D to go to the address bar, copy the URL, then open Chrome and paste it into the Chrome address bar.

I guess you could do the same with Firefox, but as I said before, Firefox has always been my least Favorite browser.

I am not quite ready to put all my eggs in the Edge basket.

After disabling UI Automation, each time I start Edge it asks if I want to make it my default browser.

I have Firefox set as default in Windows Settings.

If I click on a link in an Email or anywhere else, it launches Firefox.

How the h**l do I stop Edge from asking?

I have looked everywhere I can think of in settings and the prompt is not being read by Jaws or Narrator in any meaningful way.

It's precisely the same in Google Chrome as it is in pretty much any Chromium-based browser, and is done in the On Startup page of settings, the direct address of which is, in the Chrome Browser:  chrome://settings/onStartup.
I suggest that folks get to it via the menu and settings, looking for the On Startup entry there, but pasting the above address in a new tab will get you straight ther.

I wrote instructions:  Chromium-based Edge: Setting Home Page, Default Opening Page(s), and Search Engine 
It's no different in the On Startup page in Chrome.

If like me, you are finding that when you hit backspace to delete letters in the address bar/search bar, Jaws reads the first letter instead of the letter you are deleting; follow the steps to disable UI Automation.

I did that and now Jaws behaves correctly if I realize I made a typo in the search bar and hit backspace.

Here are the steps again which have been posted by a couple people.

1. From Edge 79, go to address omnibox and type “edge://flags” (without quotes and EXACTLY AS SHOWN).

2. From experiments edit field, type “UI Automation” and press Tab.

3. From Native UI Automation combo box, choose “disabled” and restart Edge if prompted.

I search Start Page and it gave me the following result.

As far as I can tell it is indeed just the old Address Bar – just with extra functions built in by the Chromium engine so it can be used for more than simple entering of addresses.  For example you can apparently also do maths calculations in it.

The important thing is that you are not looking for another edit field to type in, just consider it as the address bar as before.

And whoever told you Edge was not compatible with Jaws is not really telling you the truth.

Almost every browser may have little issues, but you can easily use Edge or Chrome, for me Chrome has been my primary browser probably for about 3 years now. My experience with Firefox has always been more flaky which goes to show how subjective this is, but given the market share Google Chrome has and if you add other chromium based browser it’s even more, this is clearly what the majority of people use and from my observations this is no different among the visually impaired community.
