Windows 7: Links in emails opening behind Windows Live Mail

Links in emails opening behind Windows Live Mail

This is a fairly recent problem. When I click on a link in an email in Windows Live Mail, the page opens up behind WLM. It always used to open up in front. My default browser is Chrome. Anybody know how I can change it back, please?

Has WLM updated recently?

Windows Update should probably update it. It should contain an update log. I would give a more detailed description of how to get to it, but I'm mobile as of the moment.

If WLM has updated recently, it may have changed the settings to open the new Internet window behind the program. If this is true, there may be a setting to change this in the program's settings.
