Set Thunderbird as default e-mail client doesn't work


Each time I start Thunderbird, the question pops up: use  Thunderbird as the default client .... and I says yes.
What is more, at Default Programs, Thunderbird has all rights.
But still it doesn't work.

I use Windows 7, Thunderbird 60.0

If I click on a link to send a mail, Internet Explorer pop up with : "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed"

What should I do?
Thank you!

If you try to set Thunderbird default email client, by following below steps.

1. Open Start - Settings
2. Open tab "Deafult Apps"
3. Change default email app to Thunderbird.

And, still facing same problem then i recommend first try to reinstall Thunderbird if its not work then reinstall Windows.
