    Mail refuses to establish itself as default app

    I can confirm grassBlades findings, although I took it a step further. I was sure that the Mail app would not and could not be invoked when using the right-click Send to...Mail recipient function, but Frederik Long's advice to the contrary made me go back
    and check. I use Thunderbird as my default mail client, and just to make sure, I uninstalled it so that the Mail app is the only mail client present in my system. I set Mail as the default email handler:

    I then (a) confirmed that clicking on an email link or web page would indeed invoke the Mail app. I then tried right-clicking on a file and choosing Send to...Mail recipient and got the expected response:

    The Mail app will be recognized and invoked as the default mail client when clicking on email links, but not when using the right-click Send to function. I don't know whether this is by design or not, but it's been this way since the beginning of Windows
    10. It doesn't make any sense that it would work in some circumstances but not others, but there you have it.

    Message when I click the "read mail" icon that "the default mail client is not installed"

    When I try to open mail by clicking on the "read mail" button at the top of Internet Explorer 11, I get an error message of "cannot perform this operation because the default mail client is not installed"

    [Original title: Mail in Explore 11]

  5. Launch regedit
    answer yes to UAC prompt

    Start from the top of the tree (Computer)
    and Find (Ctrl+F) .eml

    This should be the first key found: HKEY_Classes_Root\.eml
    dbl click the (Default) value in the right pane,
    remove the application name from the text box
    press ok
    press X to close regedit

    See if that helped.
