    Might have to do with this. Try to change it and see if that does it.

    Well that fixes the links opening in metro style view, which is good but it doesnt fix the links opening still in IE, Id like them to open in chrome which is the default browser.

    See if associating them with chrome instead from Default programs does what you want.
    Go to control Panel - More settings, to get to the old style CP, and choose Default Programs. Or type default in the start search - Apps.

I noticed that you can only set the default program for FTP to a browser. I've created an FTP share in Explorer, and it would be useful to be able to click on a video file and directly play it with e.g. VLC instead of a browser. Would this be possible? Thanks in advance.
