When I make an appointment in Outlook, many times I will put the address in the Location field if I need directions to get there. But once I create this, the Location field is not a clickable link so it doesn't open the Windows default map program on my PC. (I'm using the default Map program that came with Windows)

 

Since I sync between the PC and my Android phone, the Location field on my Outlook phone app, does open a map program if I touch the address in the appointment. 

 

So why doesn't this work on the PC? Sure I can copy and paste the address but I can't image that is the only way I can get directions on my PC. 

 

What am I missing here?

 

Thanks,
