I am using Office 365 and I have not noticed any option to select which browser for this method of reading emails.
My default browser for Windows 10 is Chrome.

I’m glad you brought up this example. I use the same method for handling lengthy email messages with dozens of links. You would think that this key sequence, alt-h, a, v, would take you to a combo box listing major browsers. However, the only option is IE.
I’m using Outlook 2016. I don’t know if the same limitation applies to Outlook 2019 or the ever-updated Outlook 365.

This IE change poses a question for me. I use other browsers than IE with one exception. I am using Windows 10 and Office 365. I use Outlook and from time to time I get email messages usually from a company/organization that I have a problem with. I want to enter on a specific link and when I do this, I am transferred to a web page not the topic I wanted. After trying a second time to be sure I have entered where I do want and getting the same results, I go to the next method. With the email open I pressed alt-h, then a and finally v which opens up in IE and the email is presented in HTML. I again find my link and enter on it and I am taken to the correct page. I am assuming this is some accessibility software issue beyond my knowledge. Smile. This long winded explanation leads me to the current thread. I assume I will still be able to do this as needed, but if there is a straightforward alternative, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
At least two people pointed out on Win10 Forum that they need Internet Explorer, and I advised them to look into IE mode in Microsoft Edge designed for scenarios like accessing web applications that rely on IE and its rendering engine for full functionality.
Um … that means that it will no longer be updated, causing increasing holes in security.
The blog said support would end, it did not say it would be removed.
