As said in the subject, every time I add a to-do in Reminders.app from the Safari 'share' button, it gets created as Chrome Link, rather than Safari. Therefore when I click on it, it opens Chrome.

enter image description here

I have checked and Safari is correctly set as default browser in preferences, and in the Reminders.app preferences there's nothing related to browser.

For Reminders.app I mean the native macOS application.

UPDATE

If I do the same action on iOS, the link is correctly added as a Safari link, and trough the iCloud I get the to-do as Safari link as well. So it is something that macOS is doing.

Also, I have exported the to-do list and opened with text edit:

This is the to-do from iOS, which works fine:

This is instead the to-do added from macOS, as you can see there is a whole new section X-APPLE-APP-LINK-DATA filled with Base64 data:

    if you paste a link, say in textEdit or any other native app and click on it does it also go to chrome? or is it specific to Reminders? – Pro Blaster Feb 10 '18 at 16:39
  • Created a link in TextEdit and clicked on it. It opens Safari, so it seems specific to Reminders – Leonardo Feb 10 '18 at 17:59
