Changing default email to Outlook


In Windows 10, when you click on an email link in a browser you may be prompted to choose a default email app. When this happens you can use these directions to set it.


  1. On the Start menu, select Settings.
  2. Select Apps > Default apps.
  3. Select which process you want to set a default app for and then choose the app that you want to use.
    1. You may need to download apps in Microsoft Store as apps need to be installed before you can set them as the default.
    2. In this case under email click the Mail icon.  You will then be able to select Outlook as the default Email App.
