    Hello vpfalco, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm afraid that "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults" only opens to the "Default apps" page in Settings now in Windows 10.

    Was there something specific you wanted to set?

    Yes, I need to be able to set Windows Live Mail to default in order to highlight the send page by email option in IE 11. Previously I had to set the default app and then go to Custom and do it again. Custom is no longer there but I was reading I can Run a CLSID to possibly get the page.

    Unfortunately, all the old ways to open "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults" also only open to the Settings page instead now.

    Setting "Windows Live Mail" as your default "Email" app alone should allow you to use the send page by email option in IE11.

    This is what MS calls progress - you now have less control over setting defaults than the old Control Panel method.

    I'm using NirSoft FileTypesMan to set file associations on my Ver 1803s & 1709s. It works well.
