I need to have Chrome available to conduct health assessment via Telehealth with my care provider.  Edge is not allowing Chrome to download.  How do I override this?

Hi Abel. I'm Greg, an installation specialist, 10 years awarded Windows MVP, and Volunteer Moderator. If you will work with me I will be here to help until the issue is resolved.

Do you have S mode which restricts installs only to the WIndows Store? Check at Settings > System > About.

If not type IE in Search box, open Internet Explorer to download and install Chrome:
https://www.google.com/chrome/

If further problems see these steps:

I would have several browsers on your task bar so there's always one that's best for the task. I use Firefox, Edge and Chrome in that order of preference. It's easy to share bookmarks between all of them in their settings under Import Favorites from another Browser. Firefox and Chrome let you sign in to save and/or sync your Favorites on any other device you sign into, and are more reliable than Edge at doing this. Set the preferred browser as Default in Settings > Apps > Default Apps.
Firefox download: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Chrome download: https://www.google.com/chrome/

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and keep me posted. If you will wait to choose if I resolved your problem, I will keep working with you until it's resolved.
