    • Can you provide a sample PDF that you are seeing this?

    • I see. Thanks for that. Most of the sample PDF’s I use here do not have links in them so that was helpful.

      For what it is worth I noticed that you can ctrl click and it will open in a new tab. I’d recommend that as a workaround until this feature gets added.

      Until then, I’d recommend adding this as a feature request in the Windows Feedback app in Win 10. This will allow other users to review the feedback and vote on the feature to increase the priority to our teams.

      All the best,
