    Nothing happens when I click Hyperlinks from Apps

    Tried both Edge and Chrome browsers as default. Hyperlinks work properly from progs, as they should, but nothing happens when I try to click on links from Apps.

    Seems like the new start menu has some hyperlinks and nothing happens when I click them:

    Red boxes do not work.

    Same goes for the Twitter app, every time there is a tweet with a browser link, nothing happens.

    Tried messing around with the default browsers, but never got it to work.

    Hyperlinks seems to work from normal progs though.

    Ideas anyone?

    Hi Jake,

    Please check if your Windows Firewall Service is enabled and running. If the Windows Firewall Service is Disabled you may experience some of these issues you mentioned. If you would like to switch off your Windows Firewall, enable the service, go to Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Firewall and Turn off your Windows Firewall from there.

    Hope this helps
