Windows 10 64 bit / TB 52.1.1


I have tried every trick I know to make Thunderbird the default email client for Word 2016 (via office 365). I have set TB as default email client in Windows 10 and when I click to email a document in Word it still defaults to Outlook. Any hints on how I can fix this?
Thanks,
Joe

Sounds like there are still elements in the Windows Registry that have not been updated to reflect Thunderbird as the default. http://www.officetooltips.com/office/ti ... ws_10.html
