Phone number links in edge

Hi, how do I stop skype from turning numbers in edge to phone number links. It is incredibly frustrating when every time I click on a number (not a phone number) Skype opens itself.

Hello Sam_Bt,

Thank you for the response!

Upon checking here, it appears that the automatic linking of phone numbers in Edge is a default option. There's no option to disable this, you may see this link for reference: click here

If you wish to search phone numbers without linking it to Edge, I can only suggest to use Internet Explorer.

I hope this information helps but if you have questions and clarifications, please do not hesitate to reply back.
