Hi lovoltroe,

 

1.    Which the default email program are you using on the computer?

 

In order to email photos using Windows photo gallery you will need have a email program installed on the computer.

If you already have a email program installed on the computer then try the below steps to set that email program as the default email program and check if it works.

a)   Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Default Programs.

b)   Click Set your default programs.

c)    Under Programs, click the e‑mail program you'd like to use, and then click Set this program as default.

d)   Click OK.
