How can I setup in my phone (Android 7 mimax 2) in way that every link or pop-up will be opened by chrome. In the past I was able to choose how to open. Now the called "browser" browser only does it

  • @Rahul Hôpital thanks so much You can make it an answer and I'll approve it – kouty May 3 '18 at 13:22


Go to Settings-> Installed Apps. On top you have three dots, tap on that three dots will pop up a menu, select Default app. Under browser part, set Chrome as default. After this operation, every link you open will be loaded in Chrome browser.


Go to installed apps as described above. While when you are in Installed apps, you can see an icon written with Defaults. Tap on it, and set required.

Note: MIUI is the user interface of Xiaomi devices. MIUI 9 is the latest now.

  • In the mi max 3 with android version 9 PKQ1.181007.001 there is not "installed apps on the setting" – kouty Mar 10 '20 at 12:20
  • Please mention your current Miui version – Rahul Gopi Mar 10 '20 at 12:48
