Bug: "Continue on PC" wrongly opens Edge Stable instead of default browser Edge Beta/Dev/Canary

Contributor

When Edge Beta (or Dev or Canary) is installed on a computer, and it has been configured to be the default browser in Windows 10, then any webpage sent from a mobile device to the computer, via the "Continue on PC" function on Edge Mobile, should be opened in that version of Edge.

 

However, this is not the case: it is always opened in Edge Stable.

This is a bug, or at least it is undesirable behavior.

Solution
Go to Windows Settings, apps, default apps by protocol (or equivalent in English which is not my language on the OS), find MICROSOFT-EDGE URL:microsoft-edge and it should be set to Microsoft Edge, switch it to Microsoft Edge Dev.
