    Win 10 class not registered error - when trying to open a link

    I recently upgraded to win 10 from 8.1 and I am running into a few problems.
    I'll start with this very annoying one and than open a different thread for the others.

    So I like to save URL links on my desktop - used to work fine on 8.1. Now on 10 when I drag a link from chrome to the desktop I get an error with:
    class not registered.

    I tried to look on line and there are many types of "class not registered errors and solutions - so far nothing seemed to work.

How to click a link in Edge and have it open in a new open tab.
There seems no way to click a link in Edge and have it open in a new open tab. It either opens in the existing tab or creates a new closed tab, depending on which mouse button you use.
