    Problems opening links onto Chrome from window mail

    Hi Sophie,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the time and efforts you have taken in trying to resolve this issue. However, it would be great if you can help us with the details requested below:



    • When you say, “unable to open links from my windows mail app (not Outlook) using Chrome as my default browser” do you mean that the hyperlinks in Mail app doesn’t open in chrome when clicked?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on the computer? To check type: winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit Enter.


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to try resetting the default applications and then change it as per your requirement and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    Note: Resetting the default apps will Reset to the Microsoft recommended defaults. If you have changed the default apps, make a note of the apps before resetting.



    1. Press Windows Logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Apps and click on
      Default apps
      on the left pane.
    3. Under Default apps, click on
      Reset.


    Once the apps are reset, change default browser to Google Chrome and check.



    If the issue persists, you may want to check this behavior in a new user account. Refer the steps

    Create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    to create a new user account. After creating the account, configure the Mail App and check.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

  3. Windows 10 Not Opening Links in Chrome?

    Hi Franchek,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

    I understand that some of the link are not opening through Google Chrome.

    Before proceeding, we need to know which version of Google Chrome is installed on Windows 10.

    Note: As you don’t have any issues on EDGE browser, I suggest you to set the EDGE as default browser.

    I suggest you to delete the browsing history/delete cookies from the Google Chrome browser. If the issue still persists, uninstall and reinstall the Google Chrome from the Google Chrome website and check if it helps.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
