    Default Links in Outlook are no longer working for me

    Clicking on links that appear in emails arriving via Outlook are not working. I am able to copy and paste the url to open the files, but that isn't a fix - just a temporary but inconvenient work around.

    I think this has only happened since Outlook Office 365 was renamed to Outlook Microsoft 365; whether that's co-incidental or not who knows.

    Has anyone else had this happen, or better yet, can anyone suggest a fix?

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Default Re: Links in Outlook are no longer working for me

    The most common cause in the past has been the default Browser is either Firefox or Chrome. If internet Explorer ( not a good Idea) or Edge is not the default try setting it to that.

    Easy way to change, in Search Type in Default -- open Default apps, locate the Browser - change to Edge

    You can have as many browsers as you want, making Edge the default may sort it.

    Example - Got plenty to select from

    Thanks Wainui, it did work. The only problem is that as suggested, I am now using Edge and as in most things Micro$oft, I just don't trust them. However, thanks again for the fix.

    That's fine, but as you can see by looking at the Picture I have various Browsers installed. While edge is the default you can open any browser at any time, to many to select from sometimes
