    I click any sort of a link to a webpage I get the nag box. I have run through the default setting procedure at least a dozen times. I even click "Always use this" and the check box. If I go back and click the same link, I'll get the nag box again.

    This is getting REALLY irritating.

    Well to be Straight Forward and in your face all of you as to why this is happening is not only is Edge the brand new MS toy being tossed around but most are still running a 10 upgrade install being the first time you have run 10 with an upgrade where typically upgrade installs will not only pick up on goobers to be learned being a new Windows out but they tend to carry over the hidden accidents waiting to happen from the previous version! Registry clutter is included!

    Just tried it again - unfortunately no difference. Thanks for your try though

    I don't see quite the same - presumably because IE is already my default browser....[

    Here IE isn't the default since WaterFox has that role. I only referred to that in case it made a difference if Edge was the default since you don't find any IE icon on the task bar or on the Start list under the letter I for IE or M for Microsoft IE. MS is promoting Edge at the present time as the new browser that apparently uses some part of IE to launch onto the web.

    The Edge has some obvious changes but still sees the Add to Favorites and Favorites bar you can add pages to but can no longer drag onto the bar from the address clicking on the small icon often seen there. You have to use the Add button instead all the time.

    Under Email: Select the Browser you want to open by default. This should remove the nag screen you see. Apparently this setting is tied to the URL:mailto protocol (not the actual email app). I only noticed this when I went in to change the default app by protocol as well as set defaults by app. I noticed by changing the URL:mailto setting to a browser, it changed the default email app to the browser I selected.
    I don't think this will work if you're trying to use Outlook 2010 and IE11. There is a problem related specifically to that combination. Other posts say the problem is not present with Outlook 2013 & IE11, but I haven't tried that combo. Lots of people are posting about this problem -- maybe Microsoft will notice eventually and find some way around it. It sure is annoying!

    I didn't have any issues with this combination in previous OS - Indeed the issue is specific to Edge, so I couldn't have had it in previous OS

    That's how I have it. I don't generally have issues - its just when I open links from within emails

    I think it's happening more with users who upgraded. I don't think I've seen any having this issue if they preformed a clean install.

    Hopefully I can let you know in a couple of days - just waiting for my last couple of components on a new build and then will be performing a clean install.
