  1. How do I change the TEL protocol default currently Skype if Teams is not an option presented?


    We are deprecating Skype in favor of Teams. Currently, if you click the Windows Icon -> Settings -> Apps -> Default Apps -> Choose default apps by protocol and scroll down to the "TEL" protocol, and then select "choose a default" ... Teams is not one of my options. See screen cap below.So my question is: How do I get Teams to show up as an option?

    Unable to change default app by protocol or filetype.

    Hi, I don't have Acrobat installed. With Sumatra as my default pdf reader, that hyperlink to a pdf docoument opens in.. yes.. Sumatra. Changing to Edge:

    the hyperlink opens in... yes.. Edge.

    If, as seems the case, Bluebeam is correctly associated with pdf files, I can't say why the hyperlink fails. Your guess about the protocol may be right- I don't know. If you could make any change to that to test that theory, as you suggest, that would help.

    If you wish to view the relevant registry key, a convenient way to get there is via free Filetypesman - a rt click option.
