    KB3094186 resolved the issue for me, on Windows 10 & Outlook 2007.
    When did that update come out? One of the latest update has it's own issues with default apps. See link.

    I'm not sure, it was something mentioned sometime earlier in this thread back in November.

    Solution to this problem

    I found the solution at Files are there to auto-add the single line in registry that solved the problem - there are two choices - open a new tab or open a new instance of the browser but it WORKS!
    [Note - my reg already had key for [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell\open\command]
    It needed the "opennew" entry to make the Outlook problem disappear. Probably a workaround for a bug but waiting for MS to address these things .........

    This opens new tab if IE open:
    @=""C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\IEXPLORE.EXE" %1"

    This opens new browser instance:
    @="cmd /c START "C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe" "%1""

    I have Windows 10 Pro. on my desktop and Windows 10 Home on my laptop. On both I have the default browser set to Internet Explorer. I'm using IE instead of Edge because I need the use of some add-ons that cannot work on Edge. My issue is that on both computers every time I click a link on a document or email I get the message in the screenshot below. When I click a link a pop up message ask "How do you want to open this". There is also a check box that says "always use this app". Even though I always check the box to always use IE, the message comes up every time. If I set Edge as the default browser I do not get that message. Anyone know of a solution for this? Thank you very much.
