My mums computer is running Windows 10, and she uses web based hotmail for her email. She likes to email me articles from news websites, so i set up the default mail to open hotmail and compose a new message when she clicks the email link. This worked in both Opera and Firefox. A Windows Update approx 6 months ago rendered this feature useless. A further update seemed to get it working again, and about a month ago an update rendered it useless again. So when you click the mailto link on a webpage it opens hotmail but thats as far as it goes - to the inbox, instead of opening a new message and placing the link to the article there ready to go. I cannot find a work around and my mother is driving me nuts as she is not savvy enough to copy and paste (despite me teaching her!!)

Many Thanks
