This seems a perfect reason to switch to another e-mail client. Let me recommend open source Thunderbird.
How do I stop the URL address popup when hovering over a live link in windows 10 mail? It is extremely annoying because it obscures large sections of what you are trying to read. I got no joy from reading the responses on Microsoft Forum, (first post in September 2014 and the last post in September 2019). That's five years of complaints and Microsoft's response was, "Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.
Well that’s an inbuilt feature and there's no option to disable it. Whenever you click on the picture or link mail, that particular link will always pop up.
Let us know if you have any further queries about Windows 10. We will be happy to assist you."
It would seem that Microsoft don't give a rat's rear-end about customer feedback/complaints.
Does anyone know how to circumvent this "feature" of Windows Mail?
