I'm new to Thunderbird after WLM for many years. I have Windows 10 Home on a Dell 3558 laptop. I cannot get working, in Explorer or other file managers, the right click and send to mail recipient action nor double-clicking the file. It brings up an old and non-functioning copy of Outlook or the new Mail app in Win 10. I am successful in dragging into the open TBird the file I want to send or attach.

I've read hundreds of other emails on this topic for earlier TBird versions with no luck.

Is there a way to make it function? I am comfortable with regedit if that helps. Thanks.

This is actually a Windows issue and not specifically a Thunderbird problem. Windows, particular Win 10, can be very stubborn about accepting a non-Microsoft program as a default email client (or browser for that matter.)
