What does ‘outlook fails to open’ links mean?

If Outlook fails to open links, it means that when you click on a link in an email message, the link does not open in your web browser as expected.

This problem can have a variety of causes, such as a misconfigured web browser, an issue with the email client’s settings, or a problem with the link itself.

In order to fix this problem, you may need to try a few different solutions, such as checking your web browser’s settings, resetting the default programs on your computer, or using a different web browser.

  1. Locate the outlook.exe executable
    (“outlook.exe” is the executable file for the Google Chrome web browser. When you launch Chrome, this file is loaded into memory and runs in the background, allowing you to use the browser and access the internet.
  2. Right click it and select its properties
  3. Select the Compatibility tab

The Compatibility tab is a feature in the Properties window of a program or application on a Windows computer. It allows you to change settings that can help the program run more smoothly on your computer, particularly if it was designed for an older version of Windows.

The Compatibility tab typically includes options such as selecting the version of Windows that the program was designed for, disabling visual themes, and running the program in compatibility mode. These settings can help the program run more smoothly on your computer and can be especially useful if you are having trouble getting the program to run properly.

4. Select the ‘Register for restart’ tickbox Click OK.
