Hi Khalid,

The error message can be due to the configuration of your device. To better understand your concern we'd like to know the following:

  • If you're receiving the error message when using the Send to feature in File Explorer's context menu.
  • The version and build of Windows 10 that you're using on your device. To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this link.

In addition, we'd like to check if you've already performed the steps based on the link that was provided by Kapil Arya MVP on this thread.

We look forward to your response.

Hi Jelu,

I am having the same issue (about every time I turn on my computer), and I do not want to install an e-mail client in my computer. I do not use the send function from the context menu. I am using W10 Pro version 1709 build 16299.125

Many thanks

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for your reply. As for the information asked:

  • W10 Pro version 1709 build 16299.125 (running at a Surface Pro 3)
  • Every time I turn on the computer, this exact message appears within a minute or less, even if I do not run any apps/software. Just by turning it on.
  • I tried the steps by Kapil Arya MVP, but there is no Microsoft Outlook folder (as it is not installed in my computer). So, I cannot proceed to Step 3.

Best wishes,

Igor
