Currently when I click someones email from a web site, my computer automatically select my obsolete LotusNotes email account. I want it to select my Yahoo email (xxxxx@yahoo.com). How do I make this happen? Also, should I upgrade to Windows 10?

I think you have about a year to upgrade to Windows 10, so unless you are really interested in experiencing some change, I suggest not rushing. Let other people find all the bugs first.

For making Yahoo your handler for email links:

You can start with this article: Change the program used to open email links

Does it work?

If you have a problem that everything ends up the subject link, I posted a workaround in this thread at the end of the June, maybe that still works: E-mail a Link=Link in subject line.

Any luck?
