Microsoft Wants To Force Windows 10 Mail Users To Use Edge For Email Links

Quote:The software giant revealed today that “we will begin testing a change where links clicked on within the Windows Mail app will open in Microsoft Edge.” The change means if you have Chrome or Firefox set as your default browser in Windows 10, Microsoft will simply ignore that and force you into Edge when you click a link within the Mail app.

It’s a ridiculous change, that’s similar to Microsoft forcing Cortana users to use Bing search and open results in the Microsoft Edge browser instead of other browsers that are set as default.

Microsoft has been desperately trying to convince Windows 10 users to switch from Chrome to Edge.

Get edge block here, it shuts down that horrible browser

Don't care for the way they are forcing things on people.

No shit, I guess maybe Thunderbird is okay if you have multiple accounts and need to consolidate but I have no such goings on.

You can turn that off with this.
No spyware, and works like a charm, wave goodbye to Cortina, I did.
BTW, Cortina still runs, but is part of the search function, you can turn off indexing and all that unnecessary stuff with this.
It makes it no longer active/interactive.
