Send To Outlook

Client with a question:

Windows file explorer,
on document do a right-click,
select Send to – Mail recipient

…. and this opens Windows Live Mail instead of the default Outlook.
You would suspect Windows-Settings-Apps-Default Apps to be set incorrectly, but this was not the case.

Solve this by adding a new shortcut to the list:

Windows-R (Run)
"shell:sendto" and <enter>

Add a shortcut to Outlook, go to the properties and change the link to be:

outlook.exe /c ipm.note /a 

Give the shortcut an easy name (EMAIL)
and remove the ones you don’t use (fax? really?)
That should do it! Have a nice day…
