Would anybody let me know how to use "by default"? Thanks!
"by default" means an option chosen for you if you do not explicitly chose anything. It is used in computing. For example, you install new software and you are asked where you would like to install the software. One of the options could be "Would you like to install the software in the default location?". The default location is the location where the software will be installed if you do not change the setting.
Separate names with a comma.
