THIS ARTICLE ONLY APPLIES TO DEFAULT GIZMO SKIN. IT DOES NOT APPLY TO THE NEW "METRO" SKIN WHICH DOES NOT RUN AS SHELL
Gizmo client uses the system's default windows apps to open links and files. In windows 8 & later, the default web browser is Microsoft Edge.
Since Gizmo client replaces windows shell, all Microsoft metro apps (including Windows Edge) do not run.
You will have to replace the system default browser with another one (e.g. Windows explorer, Mozilla Firefox etc)
Note: You need to install your browser of choice prior to following this process so it is available as an option.
First click the Start Button in the lower left corner of your main Windows screen (or press the Start Key on your keyboard then type/search for default browser (1).
Next you will see an entry at the top of the Start Menu that says Choose a default web browser (2).
Click that entry to continue.
That will open up the Settings>System>Default apps area with the Web browser option selected.
Click on that entry to continue.
In the resulting pop up menu just click on your preferred browser.
Once you have selected your preferred browser it will now show as the default.
Just close the window and you are done.
From this point forward any clicks on web links in apps or programs will result in your browser of choice opening up.
