    Can't Open Links from MS Outlook


    Had no problem until today. IE11 is my default browser. Get this message when I click on a link in MS Outlook:

    You'll Need a New App to
    Open this HTTPs.
    Look for App in The Store

    Any ideas?


    :)

    MS Outlook not working properly since installing Windows 10.

    Since installing Windows 10, I can't open my MS Outlook 2010 without "run as an administrator". As an administrator, MS Outlook won't allow me to conduct my customary quick searches of emails. Is there a way to fix this, i.e., open MS Outlook now without
    being an administrator?

    Can't Open Links from MS Outlook

    Suggestions :

    1. Do a system restore. Pick a date you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10

    2. If the above does not help, go to Programs and Features > scroll down to Microsoft office > right click at it > click Change > click Repair.

    3. Use this tutorial
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/8...dows-10-a.html

    Select Option Two > at the File type or protocol table, scroll down to HTTP > click the http link > follow the steps #1 to step #7.
    Make sure you restart the computer.

    OK. Got it working but now it's opening to MS Edge. I prefer IE11. Tried resetting defaults and associations but can't get urls, etc to open into IE11.

    Tried that but it only gets me to the original problem:

    You'll Need a New App to
    Open this HTTPs
    Look for App in The Store

    As I now recall, clicking a link in Outlook use to bring up a box offering which browser to use - IE or Edge. That's
    now gone.

    PS: In "Settings/Default Apps, there's an option "Web Browser - Choose a default. Clicking it gives me this message:

    There is no installed app for this type of file or protocol. Look for an app in the app store.

    Checked W10 running on my laptop and the Settings/Default apps/Web browser did offer a choice of Edge or IE.

    Yes, tried them all. Seems to me that there's a W10 problem with my desktop. As I mentioned, my laptop is OK in that it does offer browser options in Settings/Default apps while the desktop does not. I may try a clean install of course after a create a new image.

    Please post back the result of clean install.
    Good luck.

    That did it. I now at least get a choice of browsers when clicking on a link in Outlook. Being able to "Clean Install" without losing any apps or settings is a real blessing. "Settings/Default apps" again offers a choice for the default browser.

    To be honest. I don't think you did a "clean install", because as the name implies, clean install will not let you keep anything.
    I think you did a repair/in-place install ?
    Show me the tutorial you used, if you don't mind.

    Can't Open Links from MS Outlook

    I didn't use a tutorial. The tutorial found in this forum is somewhat complicated for me. Googled around and found that it's a relatively simple process. Most important is to use the exact same Media Creation Tool USB used to create the original W10 upgrade. Don't boot it but simply run the setup from within the installed W10 OS. I have a SSD so it took only 30 minutes. When it finished, it fixed my browser problem and kept all apps and files.

    We may have a terminology question here. Everything I found referred to it as a Clean Install.

    OK.
    In my book, you did an in-place install, also known as repair install.

    We'll leave it at that. No need to split hair.
    You have problem resolved. That's most important.

    Happy computing.

    Agreed. Repair install. That's a better description. Thank you.
