    resizing and emailing photos from File Explorer with Windows 10


    I want to resize and email my pictures from File Explorer, and used to be able to do that on my previous computer, but on my new one, I keep getting the error "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program , or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."


    I know from forums a few years ago that Mail App is not able to do this yet but I haven't seen any current threads about this. I have tried multiple emails as default (eg Thunderbird) but it is still not working. I am able to resize and save to a folder, and then open a new email in Gmail and attach files and send, but that is not as efficient or easy as just right clicking on the photos in File Explorer, and send to mail recipient, choose resize size, and send. I do not want to have to save the smaller files, I just want to email them.


    I know I can right click on the picture in File Explorer and click Share instead of "send to email recipient" however I do not know how to resize it before I send it that way.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
