Bill (SlartyBart)has asked me to pop in and say hello.........Hello!!
I have just done a clean install on a new 4 TB drive and installed Office 2010 I use Outlook for my emails, I do not get the screen that asks you what you want to open links in anymore. I set this for Edge, it opens my emails every time without showing the screen. On doing the link tests with Bill I could also open the links in IE11..If there is something from the Reg you want me to copy for you and paste here I will gladly help you out... BTW I only updated the drive because my other was getting full, and that was an upgrade from 8 - 8.1 - to W10 .....And yes emails were working on that drive also...
Just a thought is anyone using Nortons?? This has been causing some people problems....I am now running Nortons, However I did not install it until everything was working properly....
Welcome and thanks for dropping by. I think everyone who has this problem is OK if they select Edge or Chrome or any other browser as the default. That is they don't get the pop up box asking what browser we want to use. That's certainly my problem. It is only when we select IE11 as the default that we get the pop up every time. I don't think it's anti virus related as I've disabled mine in the past and it made no difference.
This seems to be a common fault that MS do not want to fix, they want you to upgrade, so W10 is not really free..
Here is a list that I have gathered regarding this fault..
Some interesting reading.. Len
Sorry for the delay in answering you, been away for a long weekend..
No sorry I did not make IE11 the default browser, Just tried it and no it does not accept it as default..As posted above seems to be a problem for a lot of people..until MS fixes it... It opens in Edge as default and works Ok.. I know others want IE11 Don't really see a problem with the pop up screen, just click on it and it opens fine, at least you can open in IE11 until it's fixed..Sorry I could not help, but I will keep an eye open if I see the fix anywhere and let you all know....
I might convert one of my W7 systems that runs OL2010 to see what I get.
This is my biggest stopper to converting all of my systems.
Thanks for trying it.
It's annoying, I have the same problem with outlook 2010. I really hope this will get fixed
