    Changing default MailTo Protocol in Windows 10


    I would like to change the default MAILTO Protocol in Windows 10 to a program of my choice but it won't let me choose anything other than Thunderbird or Microsoft Mail.
    How do I select a specific program (in my case it is OEClassic).
    Thanks.

    :)

    Can't choose mailto: client after latest windows 10 update

    On one of our PCs I now have the default email application showing as TWINUI in settings and it is not possible to change this. I have tried:

    • simply choosing a different program (Outlook) (settings crashes)
    • trying to find one in the App Store (gives an error: ms-windows-store:Assoc?protocol=mailto Wrong value for register)
    • trying to associate the mailto protocol with Outlook (settings crashes)
    • trying to associate Outlook with the mailto protocol (settings crashes)

    I checked the integrity of the system using DISM and then SFC /scannow with no corruption identified.

    The problem is not for all users of the PC, only some.

    There are obviously some registry values corrupted somewhere, but the solution

    here
    (deleting the user keys and leaving just the local machine key, so that windows recreates the user keys based on the local machine key) did not work either.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Protocol and change proramms Windows 10 (uTorrent)

    I was wondering why i cant se my uTorrent program in in the list when changing the protocols ?

    As in changing the default programs we have the options of "More apps" and then after that "Look for an another app on this pc" option. How come that we/i dont have the option in protocols ?

    Cant only find two why of changing it, thru "start -> settings -> system -> default apps -> choose default apps by protocols"

    Or "control panel -> default programs -> associate a file or protocols whit a program"

    Both ways do not give of a manual direction to what program i want to use.

    Magnet links for example, my uTorrent do not show up so i want to point to it or email "Mailto" protocol.

    Now i am using e-mail app so "Mailto" protocol is not an issue for me. Tho a good example.

    If i now need to go int to the regedit directory to fix this it should be part of next update
