    "Something unexpected went wrong with this URL"
    Even Bing desktop search fails to open results to default browser.

    Hi danielson

    Start => Settings => Apps => Default Apps => scroll to bottom "Set defaults by app" Click on your browser, click on Manage.

    Is your default browser set as the default for the file types?

    For links in Outlook any chance they are considered junk by Outlook?

    Got it Ken!
    They've changed things around in the Fall update.

    Thank you!
