How to Disable Microsoft Edge: Did you mean to switch apps?

 If you are using Microsoft Edge and you visit a website and click on an email address to email someone more than likely you’ve seen this pop-up.
While the above pop-up is for your security, it can be annoying. Here is how to disable the message “Did you mean to switch apps?”

Step One: Open Internet Explorer. Yes! Not Edge. Go to a website that has an email address link. Click on the email address and you will receive a popup like below. 

Step Two: Uncheck “Always ask before opening this type of address” 

By unchecking the above option, this also disables the “Did You Mean to Switch Apps” message in Microsoft Edge.
