Windows 10: Clicking links keep asking me to choose between browsers
I have exactly the same problem with Outlook 2007 as well. It's driving me nuts!
I'm also using Outlook 2007 on my Windows 7, 8 and 10 machines. I've gone to the same entry (Default Programs) in the Control Panel and am able to change between Internet Explorer and Chrome easily, except in Windows 10 I can change between Chrome and Edge, but not Internet Explorer, It just comes up with the popup.
This thread is a couple of months old, but I don't see the problem was solved. Here is the solution:
Thanks for that link. However, the fix they provide does not work with Windows 10!!
In my case, I have selected Firefox as my preferred browser. However, if I click on ANY hyperlink, it asks me if I want to use Firefox, or another browser. Again, if I tick the "Always use this" box, it still does the same thing next time.
How do you have this set?
Thanks for quick response.
Yes, I have Firefox set up as default browser, and checked through Control Panel.
However, I did not state clearly the problem - sorry!
In fact, it's the links I click on while in Microsoft Outlook 2016 that pop up the annoying question. It highlights Firefox, but still asks if I want to use this program.
So this is probably better addressed to an Outlook forum!
If you have FF set to open all it can, and it's only doing it in Outlook 2016, you may be right..... an Outlook Forum question. It is known that MS has been pushing their defaults lately, making life rough.
If you go to Settings > System > Default Apps, down at the bottom there is a Choose default Apps by file type, and Choose default Apps by protocol. Have a look in there.
Have you tried the manual solution (registry edit)? The automated solution worked once for me, not on another computer, but the registry edit works. Please make sure to backup your registry
KB3094186 resolved the issue for me, on Windows 10 & Outlook 2007.

The title pretty much says it all, every time I click a link to open it in a new tab with both buttons on my laptop the search menu opens up which get pretty annoying. Any idea on how to disable it? Thanks.
