Hi,

With Thunderbird, I use system notifications (those of Windows 11) to notify me of the arrival of new mail.

But when I click on the notification, Thunderbird doesn't open. ;'(
I checked and Thunderbird is indeed my default email software but Nothing happens when clicking on the notification.

Is there a way to open Thunderbird by clicking on the notification system, using Regedit or an extension that I haven't found?

Thanks for your help.

From what I have just read around the internet, this appears to be a bug that nobody wants to fix.
Apparently (and I didn’t know you could get it from the store) if you install Thunderbird from the Microsoft Store, this doesn’t happen. I can not confirm this as I am yet to migrate to Thunderbird.

Merci @antspants

Yes I just read the same thing. :)

I'll try uninstalling it and installing it from the Mircrosoft store to see what happens...

Thanks for this tip. :thumbsup:
