    Windows 10 + Chrome: I envy the ones that figured that out. I had to do dig deep and ended up with a non-pro solution. I disabled the Internet Explorer 11 (under Windows's Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off). Yet, now "My" Outlook says it needs a program to open ".mht" files when I click on "open in browser". Ok, easy. I associate the extention with it. -> Ouch! They say Chrome does not support that so I had to install an extention called IE Tab. After all that I need to click on "open in browser", then click on "use Chrome to open .mht -> OK" and then to click on "IE Tab Icon" to reload the nonsence into an actual web page. LOL to that.

    01 I tried to change default browser-> I already have that. Geez, I grew up on Windows since 95
    02 I tried to change default program by file type -> Chrome doesn't support .mht and W10 doesn't associate it with it
    03 I tried to change default program by protocol -> It is set to Chrome, yet -> 02
    04 I tried to change defaults by app -> 02

    I bet registry change wouldn't help. I also tried to use firefox but it seems it has the same issue with the .mht files. Other solution is to find an app in Windows Store but I guess none of us wants that.

    This solution doesn't work in Windows 10.


    I solved it opening configuration to set default programs by protocol, and assigning firefox (in my case) to http and https protocols

    Same. Doesn't change Outlook 2010 from opening IE. Bad advice.
