    Default email


    Hi,

    I have windows 10 and an old version of Outlook (2007, which I still use occasionally for archived emails) but want to only use Mail.


    I have Mail as my default email program in settings.


    However whenever I use a 'send via email' type function in Word or Explorer, it is always Outlook (2007) that opens.


    How do I stop this from occurring and get it to just open Mail?

    :)

    Hello,

    I suggest you to create an ssociate in the default apps and check if this helps.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Click on Start and select Settings.
    • Click on System.
    • From left pane select Default apps.
    • Under Email choose a default app and check if this helps.
    Write us back with the status of the issue to assist you further.

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Default email :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
