    How do I customize the Hyperlink R-Click context Menu?


    I want to be able to choose what browser I open a hyperlink with when I R-Click on it. It occurs to me there's a different menu for each application.

    In Thunderbird instead of "Open link in browser" I want to have "Open link in Edge" and "Open link in Firefox".

    In Edge I want to add "Open link in Firefox" and in Firefox I want to add "Open link in Edge".

    Can any or all of this be done and if so, how?

    I have no idea how to achieve what you're asking, short of dragging the link to the appropriate Browser icon on the Taskbar.

    As it can be done to the generic context menu that comes up when you R-Click on the deskdtop, I'm hoping it can be done to these as well.

    PS I tried dragging the link to this thread out of my email window, it pinned it to the menu that comes up when you R-Click the Firefox icon on the taskbar without opening the link. It refused to do anything when I tried to do it on the Edge icon on the taskbar. IE The red circle with a slash through it "no" icon.

    Copy/paste the hyperlink to what ever browser you care to use.
