Word 2016 and Outlook


Recommended Posts

I am using Word 2016 and Outlook, both are MS Office 360 programs.  I want Word and Excel to default to Outlook when sending e-mail from Word and Excel.  However when I click the "email"  or "share" button Windows Live Mail opens, not Outlook.  I have made Outlook the default app for e-mail and in "File Type and protocol Associations Outlook is set for .eml and MAILTO. Still Windows Live Mail opens.  I can't find anything to address this issue for Windows 10 Pro, version 1803.  Can anyone help?

Thanks for the information, but that didn't help.  I have an e-mail account set up in Outlook.  I want Outlook to be my default email app, not Windows Live Mail.  Currently when I try to send a Word docx, or Excel doc. or even a pdf. the Windows Live Mail opens instead of Outlook.  Windows 10 Settings has Outlook set as the default email so why is Windows Live Mail opening?

Any ideas?
