Of course, this idea is not one of my own, Steve pretty much described it, except that he didn't know of a convenient way to make it work. Well it seem that the folk at VMware had this figure out along time ago.
Locate the VMWare start menu and access your os from it
VMWare > Preferences > Default Application | and choose
Internet Explorer -- Windows 10
Now any link you click from your mail, twitter client or rss feed will automatically open in the IE inside of windows 10.
This should work with any OS. Not just windows 10.
