Anytime you click an email link in Outlook, it automatically opens it in the Edge browser. If Edge is your default then it is the expected behavior. However, if you changed the default browser to Chrome then Outlook opening links in Edge can be annoying. Thankfully, you can change the default browser to Chrome in Outlook so that anytime you click on a link in an email, it automatically opens it in the Chrome browser. This tutorial shows you where to find the option and change it so that Chrome is your default browser for Outlook.
