    Scan to Email Question In Windows 10

    Howdy all,
    I Have windows 10. Here is my problem. I use an HP photosmart 5510 series all in one printer. I use this to scan documents. Before I upgraded from windows 7, I could scan to Email using Gmail. When I try this with windows 10, Using HP Scan, I'm told to set a default program in control panel. The problem is that the only program available is Microsoft mail.

    Thanks in advance,

    Set up Microsoft mail to access your gmail account?

    Best solution would be to get Mozilla Thunderbird installed. Then, use Windows Fax & Scan. When you scan in the documents, all you do is click Forward as E-mail, and it will open the scan up in Thunderbird.

    The reason why I suggested Thunderbird was because it's free, and the Mail app in WX doesn't work with WFS.

    Just tested it and it works on Windows 10 x64.
