PowerBi Mail Button


I have a button in PowerBI which opens a default mail application.
Can I somehow force it to always open Outlook?

Hi @Nick_Kalichava 

You can change you default mail on computer setting,  change it to outlook, you can refer to the following link.

How to Set Your Default Email App in Windows 11 (

Then when you click the button , it will open the outlook.

Well I know that,
But for other End Users, who are using the report, they might not have Outlook as default mail application and it won't work.
Can I force a button to open NOT the default but OUTLOOK only?

Why the requirment for "Outlook"? as what happens if a client PC doesnt have Outlook installed?  isnt it better to use the client PC's default mail app.


It's a company report and veryone has and uses only OutLook, but nobody has it as default. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
