Windows 7: Default Programs? Says Who…

Default Programs? Says Who…

Hi Folks,

I have a spanking new computer, running windows-7. The OS is the home version, apparantly a premium package. I am signed in as the administrator.

The thing is. I want windows to recognise `my` favorite mail client, EUDORA.
( I have been using for years and has a whole load of history in the files )

Surely I can change this? How can I go about that?

What exactly do you mean when you say recognise? are you trying to install Eudora and it is failing?

If this is the case please provide the errors messages you are getting.

Also make sure you running the program as administrator when trying to install. How to Run a Program as an Administrator in Windows 7.

Let me know.
