Windows 10 SendTo becomes Share

Windows 10 'Right Click/Send To' doesn't work with the Mail app that windows 10 provides.

Bad Internet Advice: download Live Essentials

The internet is recommending downloading the old 'Live Essentials'.
Live Essentials has not received support or security updates since January 2017. Please don't do this.

Send a file with  Mail

To use the 'Modern' Mail app to send a file,
  1. Right click on the file
  2. Choose share instead of send to
  3. Choose the mail app.
This won't help with other applications like your scanner that want to use the 'registered email client'. To do this,  download a real email program.

To use sendto, add a full fledged mail app

A modern looking email program with a free license for personal use.

An aged looking but functional  free open source email program.

I would assume this issue is due to it being a Windows Universal Windows Platform app instead of a legacy mail program.

Ubuntu 17.10 Post Install

Ubuntu has given up on Unity. I will miss the idea of an Ubuntu phone, but not Unity itself. Gnome is welcome.

Post Install:

- Remove Thunderbird and Install Evolution
    a real email/calendar client, and evolution undergirds the email/calendaring anyhow.
- Gnome Tweaks
   manage extensions, desktop settings,
- Chromium 
   Need a alternate browser for occasions, also, like the profile management for managing many sites     google accounts

- Install keys
- Add sftp/smb bookmarks
- install geany ide
- Gnome Web 
   a webkit browser, a little more like Safari, for testing
- put terminal on dock


- Extension dash to dock 
  Optional now that there is an ubuntu dock
