    Did you get the following error when clicking on a link inside Microsoft Outlook 2013?

    The error can be the result of not having a default web browser configured.

    To set a default web browser in Windows 8 first click the Windows "start" butotn, then type in Default Programs:

    Next, click on "Set your default programs":

    Last, scroll and select your favorite web browser, such as Google Chrome, and then click "Set this program as default":
