    Default Resetting default apps

    Hi,
    I have a question about how I can reset the default app settings. For example, using Blinkfeed on my M8, when I tap on a link, the first time I was asked which browser should be used. How can I reset Blinkfeed, or any other app to ask me again which app to use? Is it always an app setting, or can I centrally control that behavior?

    Its in settings>apps>swipe over to all apps, then scroll down to the app in question. Click on it, and you can click clear defaults.
    You can also reset all of them by settings>apps>menu>reset app preferences.
