This is related to Windows 10 and Browser:
- A client uses 3 browser on the same time (IE, Edge and Chrome)

No, There is one Default Browser and all others are not Default. Load the browser you wish to use.
1st, 2nd, 3rd in what? What should be the consequence of that hierarchy?
If there is a specific application / website the user wants to run in a specific browser then:
1. Set the default browser to be the one he will use most of the time.
2. For the others, setup specific shortcuts forcing the URL / application to open with the other browsers. Depending on how an application utilizes the browser, shortcuts may not be possible.

At a past job, we had vendors who preferred Chrome and others Firefox and others .... I would configure browser-specific shortcuts to access the preferred web page / application.

I don't see any advantage to #2 and #3 ? Just have the Icons/shortcuts readily available.
From my experience with hosted applications / websites, if you *must* use a vendor's website / browser-based app then you need to follow their recommendations or they will rarely work with you on issues until you follow their recommendations.

I've even gone to the point of disabling updates to browsers and manually doing the updates *as the vendor allowed for the support*. It is a pain but that is the realistic (and hidden) cost of doing business with online / cloud-based systems and no unification of standards.

Sad to say, the "no unification of standards" almost always applies to internal web-based apps developed by either different departments or different development groups within the same department ... which can be *very* frustrating because the issue(s) rapidly become political and the outcome is all-to-often not in the best interests of the users who suffer.

Even including all the above, you can only have one default,  so if you need a particular browser for a particular application, then just build the shortcut as suggested.
