In case, you are working on Windows 8 OS, then go to the Start Button and simply type Default Programs or press the Windows Logo + C and then go to the Settings Option followed by picking the Control Panel and then going to the Programs. After this pick the Default Programs. Windows Vista or 7 OS users, can go to the Start Button and then choose the Default Programs.

However, make sure to save the changes done while setting default browsers. These quick tips will no doubt help you open the hyperlinks in email messages in Outlook without any difficulty, so try them and see the difference yourself.
