8460p and 8570p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When doing a fresh install of Windows 10 on either 8460p or 8570p, the Internet browser hotkey launches Edge correctly.

However, the other hotkeys fail and do not work at all, such as LCD brightness.

To activate these other hotkeys, one have to download and install the hotkey driver from 2012.

Doing so corrupts the browser hotkey which instead of loading Edge, now loads the old Internet Explorer (which is still part of Windows 10)

Question: There must be a registry key somewhere that controls which browser is loaded when the browser hotkey is depressed. Please explain how to change this behaviour.

 

(And please, don't suggest all these standard solutions that doesn't solve anything!)
