Opening mail in Edge
« on: February 29, 2020, 07:00:50 PM »
I have switched using my Windows browser to Edge as many sites now require it or similar browser.  I have changed my Windows Default browser to Edge also.  Unfortunately when some of my Outlook emails open a site, it comes up with an Internet Explorer browser, and they don't work correctly. Is there a way I can get Outlook emails to open all items in Edge?

Hi Dick,
Try this
In the Windows Search Window (Next to Start Button in lower left of screen) type default apps
For e-mail, change the app that opens Outlook from IE to Edge.
In my case, I have the default app for opening e-mail set to Outlook, not a browser

Please let me know if this is the solution for your request.

I'm making the assumption that you are using the stand-alone Outlook e-mail client and not accessing your e-mail from a web browser.

I will disagree with Ralph on his suggestion. You need to take it a few steps further.

I have included the following screen captures to make sure you have the same settings as I do:
* Default Apps
* File types and protocol associations
* Choose default apps by protocol
