I guess if a dataset is APF protected and when you try to edit it, BROWSE will be substituted automatically.

on a professional forum guessing is just a waste of time for everybody.
( even worse when the guess is completely wrong )

instead of guessing better spend time meditating on

Introduction to the New Mainframe: z/OS Basics

and on the whole series of
ABCs of z/OS System Programming
available here

to save You from guessing here is the link to the first volume of the series
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

APF protected

Besides guessing wrong, there is actually no such thing as "APF protected". Perhaps you are thinking of "APF authorized" or "RACF protected". In either case, you are wrong about why it switches to browse.
