    I'm using windows 8 pro RTM. When selecting pictures from File Manager, the option to Email under the Share tab is greyed out. If I right click on the picture(s) and select Send To - Mail Recipient I get a message stating...



    "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install ........."




    I have not changed any default settings. When going into the Set Program Associations for a program, the default Windows Mail app is already set and a check is in the box for MAIL TO.
    Any solution?

    Hello,

    Is your user account local or Windows live ID ? I mean you have the choice in the installation process to associate your windows mail account as user account or not.
