    Link via Discord/Steam takes forever to open.

    Hey Tenforum community,

    I am having trouble opening links that get send to me via discord/steam.
    Normally it instantly open in Chrome.
    But now it takes ~30 sec to open a link in chrome when I click on it.
    If I copy the link manually and paste it in url bar it open instantly.
    Never had this problem before so I hope someone can help me.

    Edit: This happened on a fresh windows 10 x64 install with latest drivers.
    Edit2: I tried to set my default browser to Edge to see if it fixes the problem. But Edge also reproduce the same behavior as Chrome.
    Edit3: I think my http and https open registry is broken, trying to fix it.

    Did you ever find the cause? I am experiencing the exact same thing. Fresh install.

    The cause is something within Edge. Many people note it clears up after a couple of days but if you installed the latest version (Fall Creators) you can go into Settings, do a reset and repair of Microsoft Edge it will correct the issue.
