Mailto function won't open Outlook / Mail app


Hi community,


In one of our models we frequently use the Mailto function. 




When I click the link, a new tab opens in chrome but Outlook doesn't open after. When my colleague clicks the link the Outlook does open.


Pop-ups aren't disabled in my Chrome settings. Has anyone encountered this issue before?

    Hey - changing your default settings should correct:


    Assuming you have windows go to:  Windows Settings --> Apps --> Default Apps --> Email.   Change to "Outlook".  Then it should recognize that by default.
