Windows 10: Can not declare IE 11 as default program
You're right. I should have said Outlook 2010 and earlier. It seems really weird to me that, at least in Office 2010, Outlook is the only one that gives the nag screen. I like IE11 better than FireFox, but at least email links open right away in FireFox (if that's your default browser). I'm going to try that for a while with the one machine I still have Win 10 on.
Yeah, that wasn't much help (either my suggestion or the text format). Thanks though.
Nah, everything looks fairly standard once it's outside out Outlook.
Well then I think you've done an admirable job!
Ok, nix that article, you've exhausted the possible solutions.
The dlls that wouldn't register - not to worry, .NET and Edge have changed a lot of things.
shdoc401 is old ... IE 4
shdocvw - is browser control (probably replaced the above dll)
mshtml though ... that might be something to follow a little further.
Internet Explorer Architecture (Internet Explorer)
If there is a solution it's most likely going to be a registry mod, perhaps with replacement dlls from your pervious OS. This won't be easy for me since I don't have Outlook 2010 to test any of this.
I'll keep thinking and looking, but I don't have anything else now.
In 2014, Trident was forked to create an engine referred to internally as "EdgeHTML" on Windows 10. The new engine is "designed for interoperability with the modern web" and deprecates or removes a number of legacy components and behaviors, including document modes, ensuring that pure, standards-compliant HTML will render properly in browsers without the need for special considerations by web developers. This resulted in a completely new browser called Microsoft Edge, which replaces Internet Explorer as a stock browser of Windows and a base of Microsoft's web related services
Wish I could have been more helpful.
Good luck, there are a lot of well versed members - one of them will probably come along and help find a solution or call the game on account of rain
I'd assumed the .dll's that wouldn't register was a Win 10 thing. I had the beta 10 for quite a while but didn't pay that much attention to it.
I keep coming back to the fact that links work normally in all Office 2010 apps...except Outlook. So if the solution is a registry tweak, isn't it something in the Office 14 keys rather than the file association keys?
Try running SFC - it might correct a SxS winner/loser.

I asked for more help from other TF members, so hang in there.
You might consider using the Feedback app to bring this to MS's attention. You need a MS account to use the Feedback app.
Appreciate all the help Slarty. But SFC found nothing.
I would go to feedback, but I'd have to get it through the Windows store...which opens for about 1 second then disappears. I've assumed that problem is on their end.
So, when I set a default program in the Settings app and then open a file, Windows still asks which program I want to use. Admittedly, it does this only once per file type, but this is extremely annoying in a work environment where there are...
I'm on the insider program. Can I move it to another Computer ? If so how? I want to sell my old test computer.
There is the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion but changing the location in there, doesn't appear to be doing anything.
I have a relatively small SSD and I can not install everything to my C drive. I...
