Outlook Express

by chuckbrewster / September 15, 2006 7:05 AM PDT

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1415 S173 Laptop. When in sites on the internet where I want to get information it might say "E-mail us" and clicking on that often brings up my own Outlook Express.

I don't want to have two e-mails. I use MSN Explorer for e-mail and want to use that as the one and only.

How can I disable the Outlook Express, and make the default MSN Explorer?

That could be a problem.

All you can do: in IE go into Tools>Internet Options>Programs (or use Control Panel>Internet Options). Note the setting voor 'Email' is Outlook Express. Try the other options.
- If one is successfull, use that.
- If none is successfull, reset it to Outlook Express and copy/paste the email-adress from the new message created by OE to your preferred email-program MSN Explorer. Or keep using OE for this special occasions.

Please tell what you find.

Your suggestion was perfect.

Not being a guru I have to ask a lot of questions and it was sure nice to have CNET here for me.

Again thank you, Kees.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
