    Setting up Pegasus Mail as default mail client under Windows10

    Is there, somewhere, a foolproof working paper on how to set up Pegasus Mail as default mail client on Windows10?

    Help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks, Johnny

    And: Tools => Options => Hyperlinks => System mailer in Pegasus Mail - or doesn't this work on Windows 10 anymore?

    Thanks, chaps, for steering me in the right direction.

    Tools => Options => Hyperlinks => System mailer in Pegasus Mail - or doesn't this work on Windows 10 anymore? - Yes thanks, its works with Win10.

    Much appreciated.

    Doesn't work any longer. Windows just resets go their new Mail program first time you try to use a link to Pegasus. Somehow M$ must detect the mailto: or that windows is asked to open an app it doesn't know but where? COuld be in some part of the defender to avoid programs not to run, could be in the registr but there I can only find "mailto" in some keys for Adobe.

    Make sure your "Default Programs" has WSendto.exe. Just a note, Microsoft resets all these choices back to factory defaults when major upgrades are installed.

     It works without any problems on my Win10-Pro PC.

    Go to Windows Settings
    -> Apps
    -> Default apps
    -> Email

    Select -> Pegasus Mail WSENDTO Utility

    It's in a pop-out list that on my system includes:

    Mail (the Win10 app)
    Google Chrome
    Opera Internet Explorer
    Outlook
    Pegasus Mail WSENDTO Utility
    Thunderbird

    I'm using the most recent Win10 Pro OS update (version 1809) with Pegasus v4.73.

    I hope this helps.

    Russell
