    outlook.com as default

    How can I select the new outlook.com email service as my primary and default email program? I would also like to use as the default in the Google toolbar if possible. Any suggestions!

    Aren't you using outlook (the desktop version) as the default email client?

    Yes, I was using Office Outlook but want to change over to the outlook.com. When I click a link that opens my default email it opens the Office Outlook. I want it to open the web based outlook.com. Apparently there is a way to set gmail as the default but not outlook. All this is in IE9.

    This seems to have worked for hotmail, so may work for outlook.com, which replaces hotmail. When I type hotmail.com now, it takes me to outlook.com. So, this may work, or it may not. I never tried it so I can't say it works.
    If you want to try it, at least create a new system restore point before doing it. Here is the link: http://email.about.com/od/windowsliv...il_Program.htm
