To set Thunderbird as your default mail client in Microsoft Word:

  1. Go to the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the Add or Remove Programs option and then choose Set Program Access and Defaults on the left side of the box.
  3. Click on Custom and then click on the arrows icon (two arrows pointing down on the right side of the box). Under Choose a default email program, select Thunderbird and click OK.
