  1. Open Control Panel. You can do so easily press Win+X, and select Control Panel from power user menu that pops up.
  2. Click Programs, and choose “Make a file type always open in a specific program”
  3. In the next Window, find and highlight MailTo item from the long list of extensions. You should be able to locate it at near the bottom of the list.
