    mailto: links don't work in Chrome on Windows 10

    Hi all -

    I'm experiencing a weird problem in Chrome on Windows 10. Clicking on mailto: links does nothing. Doesn't matter what webpage; it's like the link doesn't even exist.

    I've reinstalled Chrome, and confirmed that my default app for email is Chrome. See screenshot. Still nothing.

    A little Googling led me http://www.tenforums.com/browsers-em...tml#post424855, where I saw this screenshot, the bottom of which allows you to specify the mailto: default:

    Yet I can't figure out how to navigate to this section within Windows 10. Any help?

    Thanks a million!

    Thanks, Coochin! That is indeed where that setting is.

    Thanks, Bruce! How right you are -- and how helpful that article was!

    Turns out I needed to install the following plug-in:

    What a hassle.

    Thank you again!
