Is there a way to set Edge Canary to be the default browser?

Is there a way to set Edge Canary to be the default browser? (or in other words, is there a way to bypass the message of "the canary channel cannot be made your default browser")?

Hey there! We don't recommend setting Canary as the default browser for the reason listed there. In the event that a breaking issue goes out to Canary, or a particularly gnarly bug occurs, we don't want folks left in a bad state with their default. However, this is a conversation that the team revisits from time to time, so definitely submit feedback (... menu on the top right > Help and Feedback > Send feedback) and let the team know you'd like to be able to do this and why. =)
