    Outlook 2010 Keeps Asking How to Open Email Web Links


    After the upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Outlook 2010 keeps asking how to open web links embedded in email messages. I select Internet Explore (not Microsoft Edge) and check "Always Use this App" but each time I get the prompt. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    :)

    Outlook 2007 keeps asking which program to use to open links.

    I use Internet Explorer because I have a couple extensions that arent supported in Edge.

    After Windows 10 upgrade Outlook 2007 keeps prompting for which program to use to open links . I've searched and found a half dozen or so threads on thei subject and I've tried all the suggestions offered but the problem persists. It only happens with Internet
    Explorer. If I choose another browser for the default I don't get the pop-up.

    I've reset Internet Explorer, uninstalled all my alternate 3rd party browsers and set the program defaults. As other posters have said, "this is very frustrating.

    Although not Windows 10 /Outlook 2007 specific below are *some* of the threads I've read and tried the suggestions...

  3. Unable to open web links in outlook email msgs

    I think I would re-install it and then uncheck the default browser option.



    Otherwise I would guess you would have to try a manual un-install ....

    I get the same message after a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. It is driving me nuts. Would be grateful if someone can solve this. Thanks

    I'm having the same problem also! Very frustrating to say the least. I even tried selecting a different browser and the same problem occurs. I wonder if Outlook 2010 and Windows 10 just don't play well together?

    Outlook 2010 Keeps Asking How to Open Email Web Links

    Hmm, suspicious.
    I find it strange that if I set it to automatically open in Microsoft Edge, it works every time no problem.
    Is this then, Microsoft then trying to force us into using Edge??
