Windows 10 Mail app used to open links in Microsoft Edge despite the browser’s settings. Of course, users did not embrace this feature with open arms and the tech giant was faced with a massive backlash. Microsoft seems to have been listening carefully to windows Insiders’ complaints because the company may reportedly no longer forces users to open links from the Mail app in the Edge browser.

Microsoft pays attentions to user feedback

Microsoft’s move is likely to come as a response to the various posts on the Feedback Hub which have been asking the company to stop forcing Edge to open links from Mail.

Aggiornamenti Lumia posted a screenshot of the new version of the app that’s just around the corner and will be rolled out in a few weeks. In the lower part of the screenshot, there’s a new setting option that has on and off toggle for opening links in Microsoft Edge.

New UI elements included in the Mail and Calendar app

The screenshot also flaunts some brand new UI elements packed in the Mail and Calendar app. There seem to be included some new icons for the mail folders and a few other icons for users’ various accounts. These seem to be similar to the new features that are packed in the new Fluent Design which have been initially revealed at Build 2018.

This upcoming change is a sign that hints at the fact that Microsoft is not even considering pushing Edge and instead it’s enhancing the Mail app based on user feedback. We can’t wait to see the new build of Windows 10 to see what other goodies are on our way.
