    SendTo mail opens Outlook instead of Mail app

    I am using Mail app built in Windows 10. Office 2013 is installed with all applications. If I try to use the SendTo link from Explorer, it opens up Outlook instead of the default Mail app. In default programs, Mail has all his options checked.
    How to make the SendTo work properly with Mail app?

    I think the problem you will have there will be that SendTo is characterised for programs that take command line arguments.

    That doesn't include the universal apps.

    Same issue for me with a new Acer Aspire e 15. Installed Thunderbird and works perfectly on Thunderbird. The thing about Outlook for me is the files wouldn't send unless Outlook was open. Files send perfectly in Thunderbird.
