Windows 7: Outlook.com vs. WLM when "send link as" or "send page as" is clicked

Outlook.com vs. WLM when "send link as" or "send page as" is clicked

I have a W7 32bit laptop and I do not have MS Office installed. I have been using Hotmail until a couple weeks ago when I was "converted" to outlook.com email - which I like OK. When I'm using a browser - IE9 in this case - and when I click on "send link as" or "send page as", it launches Windows Live Mail and puts me in a WLM output email. I would instead like it to launch me into outlook.com and an outlook.com output email. How can I do this - or can't it be done at all?

If I've posted to the wrong board plz let me know which board to post it to.
Thank you in advance for your help.

did not work

The solution you posted references a downloadable utility that is for Vista only. It will not run on Windows 7 at all. What now?

"Outlook Express" came with IE on XP and earlier versions of Windows. On Vista, "Windows Mail" took its place. On Windows 7 the mail program is "Windows Live Mail" and is available through the "Windows Live Essentials" package. If you were able to get Outlook Express to run on Windows 7 please let us know how you accomplished that.

[Outlook.com is web (browser) based email which is the current name for Hotmail.com. Neither is an email program that would be installed on a PC; instead they should be thought of as an email service available through a website or used with an email program like Windows Live Mail as one of the email accounts.]
