    I would gladly suffer through the extra click. But I don't think my wife would. Here we have two Microsoft products and they cannot fix a simple problem.

    Not a happy camper.

    If I make Firefox or EDGE the default, all is fine with the OL2003 links. But I prefer IE11 as Firefox has other problems for me and EDGE is a mess.

    Or force us to upgrade to the current Office product which I believe has an annual license fee.

    I like to hang onto my programs as long as possible too, but you have to admit that Outlook 2003 is 12 years old. I'm surprised you're not having more issues than just IE 11 not opening a link from it.

    That said, I'm not having any problems with IE opening links in Outlook 2016. And you said it! Edge is a mess and I'm not overly fond of Firefox, but it's a bit better than IE.

    What I'd like to see is that those who use Outlook and have Office 2010, 2013 and the Technical/Public Preview of Office 2016 make IE your default browser. Close down Windows 10 and then reboot.

    Let Outlook (not Outlook.com) gather your mail and click on any links. Could you then post your results? If/when this issue proves out, I want to take it to a higher level to see if the "Team" is working on it.

    The only reason I am running OL2003 on this PC is that I am using my 2010 licenses on my other two PCs. And it was working fine until I tried to make IE11 my default browser. Since it is also affecting OL2010 users, I cannot convert my other PCs. I have tried using the Mail app on this PC but I still want to run OL2010 on the other PCs. I like MS Office and don't mind paying for the licenses I now have.

    They have and they have the same problem.Go to Can not declare IE 11 as default program - Windows 10 Forums and read all about it. I wish you would see if the "Tram" i working on it. We have all put in Feedback about the problem.

    Windows 10 Home 64 bit

    I'm using Outlook 2007 and IE 11 is my default browser. When I click a link in an email, a window pops up asking which program to open it with. This is what it looks like.

    If I choose to use IE all the time, it will still open the same window every time I click a link and I will have do a second click on OK. If I choose Edge and tell it to use it every time, Edge becomes my default for everything and the same happens if I choose Chrome. Then clicking email links will open in that browser immediately, without showing that choice window. Outlook 2007 will not recognize IE as being the default even when you tell it to.

    The regular Office still has a permanent license. You may be thinking of Office 365 Home which is a subscription, monthly or annually. Office 365 allows use on five computers and five mobiles on the one subscription ($10/month or $100/year). Look for a Windows 365 subscription product in a couple of years. The x365 products are an alternative, not a replacement, for their respective products.
