    'Settings' Default is not= Control Panel 'Default Programs' - All

    Hi, An observation, not a question. I wanted to set Thunderbird as my default email client again (after having reset defaults whilst looking for a problem).

    So I set it as my default email client in 'System', 'Default Apps'.

    This proved not to be the same as using Control Panel, Default Programs, and setting it as handling all file types it could.

    (In particular, the first still did not mean Pop Peeper would find a client it could launch, whilst the second did).

    I'm wondering if this will prove the same for other programs.
