    IE has hijacked my page


    Since the last windows 10 upgrade I can no longer click on a link in an e-mail and have it open in my preferred browser, Edge. It tries to open in IE which I deleted. I changed my default to Firefox but the links still won't open.

    Why is this happening and how do I fix it.

    Thank you for any help.

    :)
