How To Change Outlook Settings: Default Browser

Everyone has their own preferred browser, but if that’s not Edge then Outlook may have started opening links in emails in Edge regardless of your preferred choice. Setting another browser as default does not override this behaviour.

It’s a quick fix to change this so that Outlook uses your default browser.

Right click the Mail icon in Outlook and go to Options > Advanced

Here you will see the option change where hyperlinks are opened, from Edge to your default browser. Choose ‘default browser’ and click OK.
