So I have this problem that has me fuzzled. Right click -> Send to -> Mail recipient will not work with Thunderbird, on only one of my Win7 x64 machines. The resize menu comes up, but then nothing happens after I click OK. It's like either Explorer isn't sending the command or Thunderbird isn't listening.

 

I have tried

  • uninstalling - reinstalling
  • changing default to Outlook (where it works) then swapping back
  • sfc check for corruption
  • setting and resetting default programs

I am unhappy with the idea of using system restore to get this setting back, many things have happened and I don't really want all those reversions, though if needs must.

 

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I am unable to find the registry key that controls the target for the command, if anyone knows that it may also be helpful.

 

Thanks

In the run box.....type::       ‘shell:sendto’       and press Enter.

 

To add, just drag and drop the location icon or copy and paste the shortcut of the destination you want.(thunderbird)

 

SO......set a new shortcut there for thunderbird. I seem to remember pressing the alt key and dragging the thunderbird icon there (no windows any more and the memory is a bit rusty)

 

Worth a try

but what if I want to choose more files? it adds to thunderbird only the last one from the list of files, I've chosen.
