Windows 7: Unable to set email association

19 Aug 2019   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64
Unable to set email association

When I try to contact a company through their website I always get a notification that ”There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel. (screenshot). When I go to Default Programs there is no email programs listed. I normally use the free Outlook Hotmail (or whatever Microsoft has decided to call it today). I would also be happy to use my Gmail or Yahoo mail accounts but I can find no way to create any email association because there are none listed (screenshot) Any suggestions? Advice?
