You can also do a Spotlight search for System Preferences by pressing the Option and Space key together. Type System in the Spotlight search bar and you will see the System Preferences option appear towards the top of the list.

2. Open ‘General Gettings’
The first icon in the System Preferences dialog box says 'General'. Click on it. The 'General' preference dialog box will open.
The ‘General preferences’ allow you to set the basic interface and layout of your MacBook Pro.

3. Select ‘Default Web Browser’
Click on the default web browser. It is already set up following the 'Default Web Browser' tag in the 'System Preference' dialog box. A drop-down list will appear with all the available browsers you can set as default.
