Mailto: not working Windows 8

  • # August 28, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    So I’ve got a stumper to see if anyone has a solution for.

    Win8 and IE10 does not see

    <a href=""></a>

    or doesn’t interpret that correctly from what I can tell. For Win7 + IE10, it works fine but not so much for Win8.
    Does anyone have a fix or hack for this? Should just reproduce the typical default behavior we know and love.

    Did you set up a default email client on the Windows 8 machine? Cause that’s basically what a “mailto:” link does; execute the default mail program and compose a new message.

    I have Windows 8 and I’ve never come across a problem where mailto: links don’t work.

    Interesting. On Win7, didn’t it use to prompt you on which email client you wanted to use to open up the email composition in?
