Greetings,

This is by design and there really isn't much you can do about it (besides going back to 4.7,
which may or may not be an option depending on what features you're using in 5.1).

Not entirely true.. Microsoft has create a admin policy for messenger and
one of the settings is to allow hyper links, the pitfal of this setting is
that it only works for those who have this setting enabled. See the
following link

Run gpedit.msc and under the User Configuration, rightmouse click on the
administrative templates and click add/remove templates, add then browse to
where the files that you extracted are and add that template.
