    Can't Get Windows Mail to Open as Default.........


    I am running 1703 (OS Build 15063.502). This issue has been going on for a while, just haven't found a solution. I cannot get Windows 10 Mail to act as my Default email client no matter what I do. When I click any Send-To or link that would normally open my default client, I get the following message: "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or if one is already installed, please create an association in the Default Programs Control Panel." Any ideas? Not a great big deal as I use Chrome and Gmail but sometimes it would be a lot easier to send an email the other way. I just can't stand for things that are supposed to work to be broken.......

    :)

    email will not set as a default

    I just got windows 10 and I can't get either of my 2 email accounts to set as the default. I am trying to get either Windows Mail or Windows Outlook to be my default but neither will work. I have gone to control panel, set defaults, but the only mail
    listed in the defaults list is Windows Mail. I have set it as the default but when I try to send a picture via email it tells me there is no default email account. (in the default list it shows Windows Mail as being the default mail) If I right click on
    a photo in My Pictures folder I can't use the feature there to send a photo with email either. I finally decided to open a Outlook account to see if that would work but it is not in the list of defaults to choose from. Help! I have tried for days to do
    this. The emails work good for mail but as I said, I can't send a photo.

  3. windows mail

    Thank you, but I do have Windows mail set up as my default. It's when I open any Word or PDF file and go to send it by email that my system defaults to Windows live mail. Can't figure out how to change this setting.

    Share does not appear in any Right-Click Context Menu, however there is a Share Tab on File Explorer Bar. I initially noticed this issue when I tried to share a file I had created using a WebCam program. The error message showed it's ugly head when I clicked the "Share File" Button inside the program. Since this issue is so prevalent on many boards and does not look like anyone has come up with a fix, I shall mark this "Resolved".
