    clicking hyperlinks in Windows 10 mail

    when I receive mail with a hyperlink in it and I click on it, nothing happens. I have set up .htm and .html files to open in Chrome..
    every once in awhile when I click on a link it will open up, but in most emails from most senders, I can not.
    Can anyone help?

    Hi Barbs.

    Please open settings and head to apps. In V1607 it is part of System, in 1703 it has its own box.

    Select default apps. On the right scroll all the way to bottom => Set default by app.

    It will take a while to show, click on Chrome, click on "Choose defaults for this program. A window will open. Near top is a box to Select all.

    Watch the extension PDF. You may wish to leave this with what ever program you are currently using. Then click Save.
