Microsoft has changed the way Windows 10 handles the default apps in build 10122: both Classic Windows apps and Universal Windows apps won’t prompt to change your defaults, only Windows does that now.

For instance, if you’ve used to seeing Programs like Chrome asking you to set it as default browser on startup when it is not, now Windows 10 shows a dialog (even though Google browser still does that and the options doesn’t work): ‘To change your default apps, go to Settings > System > Default Apps.’

Microsoft says this dialog won’t appear in future when all apps get updated to Windows 10 model for defaults, we don’t know when that happens, so you’ll see this dialog more times in future builds, get used to it.
