    Good evening everybody,
    I stop my investigations because too much time wasted for nothing.
    So in outlook 2010 I ask him to launch Edge systematically and here he does it well.
    Once in Edge when I need to save a link or go to see my favorites, so I click on the three dots (...) located at the top right. Then I asked him to run IE11.
    And this is all I found better.
    But again Microsoft is bad because when it launches a novelty he breaks something next.
    I think Edge will join his older brother Windows 8 in the thinking of lamdas users. They all go again use Firefox or Chrome instead of Edge!
    Anyway thank you all for your lost time looking for me.
    Good luck and thank you again.

    Done all of those, several times. And of course if you choose "Microsoft defaults" you get Edge.

    Sorta. If you choose any browser but IE, hyperlinks in Outlook 2010 will work fine. If you choose IE, hyperlinks in Outlook 2010 will always get you this window.



    And "Always use this app" doesn't work...at least not the 30 times I've tried it.

    I don't use Outlook, but any other hyperlinks I click always open in ie if I choose it as my default browser. Perhaps I am just not familar with your particular problem. I set ie as default just to see, but didn't have your problem.

    According to other posters here, it's an Outlook 2010 deal. I've been all through the registry in Office 14 on a Win 7 machine versus Office 14 on a Win 10. I don't see anything there.

    @essenbe,
    The problem affects Outlook 2010 as I had reported from the beginning.
    Is 2010 outlook which does not store the selection IE.
    If you do not have Outlook 2010 so there is no problem for you.

    I have exactly the same problem on 2 machines using Outlook 2007. It's driving me nuts!

    I am glad that this also happens with outtlook 2007.
    This confirms one more than Microsoft on purpose to force our hand on their Edge that does not work well.
