Why doesn't my Mac automatically jump in Edge when I click on URLs?

Copper Contributor

Hello, I've set Edge as my default browser on my Mac. However, when I click on a URL from another application like Slack or Email, Edge opens the link, but it doesn't automatically switch me to Edge. I have to manually switch to Edge myself. I tried setting Safari and Chrome as my default browser, and they work as expected. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I have the same problem. I have to manually go and find the Edge window/tab. I'm going to switch back to Chrome for now.

I also have the same problem.

Same problem. I have to find my edge browser after clicking a hyperlink. Issue can't be fixed after uninstalling / reinstalling.


For me it only happens when clicking a link in outlook email client.

My email client Airmail definitely behave with that issue.

But other apps inconsistently also have the same problem, in my case.
