Outlook 2010 is Not Recognized as the Default Email Client while sending email using other Office application.


Q:To verify Outlook is indeed set as your default email client:

 Answer: Follow the steps

  1. Open Control Panel and search for Default Programs.

  1. Select Set Default Programs link.

  1. Choose Microsoft Outlook from the list of programs.
    Click "Set this program as default".

 

Open regedit then press Enter. (You'll probably need to ok a security dialog.)

In the Registry editor, browse to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail

Right click on the Mail key and Export a copy for backup.

Right-click on Mail again and create a new key called Outlook64Bridge

Next, right-click on Outlook64Bridge and create a key under it called DLLPath. Right-click again and create a key called DLLPathEx.

Locate the 32 bit version of the file MAPI32.dll on your computer and enter the complete path name in each DLLPath key (replacing "something\something\...." with the correct path on your computer):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge\DLLPath

"C:\WINDOWS\something\something\....\mapi32.dll"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\Outlook64Bridge\DLLPathEx

"C:\WINDOWS\something\something\....\mapi32.dll"

(On my computer, a mapi32.dll is at C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-mapi_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_ad54ab3a7801c830)

Next, change the default client to Outlook64Bridge:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail

"Outlook64Bridge"

How to add Startup items to Windows 8.

Problem

You want to be able to add startup items that run when Windows starts. In previous versions of Windows, you could easily add them to the “Startup” folder in the Start menu which is no longer visible.

Solution

Open the Windows 8 start screen by doing one of the following:
Press the Windows key
Move mouse to the bottom left of the screen. When the start screen icon appears, click once.

OR (as commented by Rick) Press the ‘Windows key’+'R’
Type %appdata% and press Enter. This should take you to “C:\Users\<User-Name>\AppData\Roaming”.
Navigate to “\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”. The full path should now look something like:
“C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”.
Add shortcuts to the programs you want to automatically start into this folder.

You can now add any shortcuts you want to start when you start your computer.
