Troubleshooting: Unable to Email PDF on Windows 8

Users running Windows 8 or 8.1 may receive the error message “There is no email program associated to perform the requested action”. This is a known Windows issue that prohibits the emailing of PDFs using the default Windows mail client.

This issue can generally be resolved by using a different default email client, or by installing Windows Essentials 2012.
