Tech Tip – Clear App Defaults

Published on November 14, 2017

If a link opens in a certain app rather than in the browser e.g. a link to a Facebook page or a Tweet, you could find yourself waiting around while your phone shuts down Chrome before it loads something else. You can avoid this by:

  1. Going to Settings > Apps
  2. Finding the app that keeps opening.
  3. Scrolling down to Open by default, select it.
  4. Selecting Clear Defaults.
  5. If that fails, do the same with your browser app as well.
