    Windows 10 Mail as default for sending office documents


    I was just researching how to make Windows 10 Mail the program to use when sending from within Office applications.

    I stopped researching after getting an official sounding message from an authority saying .. you can only use "email-clients" as programs for sending attachments from within office programs.

    Is that the case ?

    Why isn't windows 10 mail considered an email client ?

    thx
    Steve

    Make 'Mail' app default for sending emails and not Outlook


    I have both the windows 10 mail app and office outlook installed but when emailing a document from within windows file explorer it always tries to send it using Outlook.

    Is there a way to get it to default to send using the Mail app instead?

    I have tried setting the default app as mail in the Default Settings but it keeps trying to send from outlook.

    Windows 10 Mail as default for sending office documents

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
