Where Windows 10 stores default email app in it’s registry? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’ve set up Google Chrome as my default email application in my [Windows 10> Settings> System> Default apps] (screenshot below). My keyboard have the shortcut [FN + F2] which opens default email application, this works well if for example I use built in “Mail” app or some other app specially designed for this sort of thing but I want to open my chrome browser gmail, problem is when I press shortcut combination on the keyboard it simply opens Chrome with it’s homepage.

    I need to find out where in Windows registry is email default app stored so I can adjust the link to open with the page I want it to but I can’t find it, there is so many different locations. This is the link I want to use which should work: ["C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" -- "https://mail.google.com"]

    Please let me know where Windows 10 stores default email app in it’s registry.
