Windows 7: Website email hyperlink trouble

11 Nov 2013   #11

Windows 7 Premium

Once I translated the Japanese to English , and did a google search with that info I found a link to Microsoft Community concerning this problem , and took this advice : " fix it in less than a minute okay so what you need to do is go into control panel and your going to see veiw by category and you change it to large icons then click default programs then click set default programs then you click windows live mail then at the bottom click set this program as default and then it will work with no problems . "

It works . Apparently Windows 7 , unlike Vista and XP , does not set a default mail client . You must do/choose yourself .

Good so you are sorted now I haven't used Vista or XP for many years now so had no idea. I know that I do have two email accounts and when I install 7 or 8 I have to use my current mail address to sign in to Live and the account is therefore installed I suppose.

But it is handy to know for the future that I know that I have to add the old one that people will insist on using still so thanks for the heads up:)
