Re-setting email client back to Windows Mail versus Office Outlook on installing the latter: how do I do this?


I recently installed MS Office and of course Outlook was installed too. Previously, I've been able to send a link from Firefox by clicking on the option under File and Windows Mail (my preference) would load with the link embedded in the email I was to send. Now it insists that Office Outlook loads. How do I re-set it back to Windows Mail? Thank you.
