Outlook URL: I first noticed this a few weeks ago, When copying and pasting a URL into an email it shortens the URL and gives it the pages title. At first i thought my firms Devs had changed the way our CRM works, but then I noticed it happening with SharePoint URLs as well, this is what I mean;
I don’t have a problem with it, in fact I much prefer it! However I got an email this morning from someone asking how to turn it off. As it transpires it has nothing to do with Outlook at all. It’s a feature of the Microsoft Edge browser.
Outlook URL Shortening is Really Microsoft Edge
Within Microsoft Edge > Preferences > Share, Copy, and Paste > Select your preference, if you want to disable this feature select ‘Plain Text’
And now the actual URL will be posted.
