In the latest Windows 10 update, Spigot, Inc learned that Microsoft will push users to their Edge browser when opening links within the Windows mail app, regardless of your current favorite browser settings.
“Microsoft will try a new way to push Windows 10 users into running Edge, forcing links opened from the Windows Mail app and its messages to display in the browser.
Normally, links embedded in messages retrieved by the Windows Mail app open in the default browser, which may be an Edge rival if the user has set one.
In the latest preview of Windows 10’s fall feature upgrade, currently known as 1809 in Microsoft’s yymm label format, Microsoft has mandated that Edge assume responsibilities for opening links within messages.
“We will begin testing a change where links clicked on within the Windows Mail app will open in Microsoft Edge, which provides the best, most secure and consistent experience on Windows 10 and across your devices,” announced Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc, the Microsoft employees who most often speak for the Insider preview team, in a post to a company blog last week.”
