Prevent new email window from opening when right clicking an email link 3 Recommended Answers 24 Replies 93 Upvotes
Last edited 4/29/19
Starting a couple of weeks ago, when you right mouse click on an email link in a message body, a compose new email window opens up in addition to the normal right mouse context menu. I only want the context menu, so I can copy the email address. I would like to stop the compose new mail message from being created when right mouse clicking on an email address.
I've tested this in both Chrome and IE on Windows, and both show the same issue.
