Summary0035949: The Lazhelp fails to load the default browser on Win10
Description The helpHtml Example in the Lazarus release, this one and most likely a few before fails to load Microsoft Edge when allowing it to locate the default browser.

  Please look at the posting In the forum group as to what is going on and what I've done to work around it.

 The method used to locate browser by ID is flawed and if I void the function so that following code uses the standard approach of locating the browser, it works.

 Please review the forum post on the issue as this was reported before well before 2.0.4 was released.,46337.0.html
Steps To Reproduce
Set your default browser to Microsoft Edge and run the HelpHtml Example program accompanied with Lazarus distribution.

Then follow the steps taken in the forum post and see how it works ok afterwards.
