How to Change Mac Default Browser?

Posted on

Safari is the default browser when you first set up your Mac, but when you download and install a new browser on your Mac, it unexpectedly becomes the default browser. The new browser will ask you to set this as the default to open links, and if you choose that it’s perfectly fine, but someday you’ll want your default browser back, namely Safari. So how to change Mac default browser?

There is no harm in making Mac the default browser, if you download and install a new browser, it will have no effect on the features and functions of any browser. The only thing changed is the browser’s default behavior for opening links. When you click links in emails and other documents, they will open in your new default browser, for example Google Chrome. However, for those who want the Safari browser to open links by default, not Chrome or anything else, here’s what you can do.

How to Set Safari as Default Browser on Mac

On your Mac, select the Apple menu in the top left corner of the screen and click System Preferences.
Click the General tab in System Preferences.
