I have a client new laptop with Windows 10 Pro installed [issue 1709]. Office 2010 home and business is installed. There are a few instances where Outlook is not recognized, or not able to respond to items such as the printer when a fax to email is chosen, or from an Adobe form that would normally open the email program when that option is chosen. I suspect the present version of Outlook may be click to run. The email is configured as a POP account. The email address being used is provided by the ISP. Exchange is not involved in any manner.
Outlook is chosen as the default email program.
My thoughts are to remove Outlook [and if necessary Office 2010] and use a program like Thunder Bird for email. The last computer used Windows live mail and all worked well.
Will just uninstalling Outlook allow a different email program to be recognized as the default email program or are there registry entries that need to be addressed?
Is there some way to configure Windows 10 PRO to communicate to third party printer / fax machines or Adobe forms that will allow Outlook to remain as the default email program?
