Updating default apps

Is there a way to update what are the default apps opened? For example, I can see Firefox is the default browser but after installing chrome and trying to set it as the default, nothing changes. I also updated the menu.xml, xdg-settings, and $BROWSER but none of these were successful.

Currently using Openbox, sorry that wasn’t clear.

obmenu → preferences → settings manager → preferred applications

Welcome to the forum @jamesthelivingplanet :balloon::tada::partying_face:


Thank you for this but exo-preferred-applications seem to not exist. Can’t install it either through pacman or the AUR either.

Thank you for the welcome!

What I ended up doing was just uninstalling firefox. That seemed to make all the other applications start using chrome.
