Outlook Express vs. Microsoft Outlook as default


Linda S

I inadvertently clicked on YES when asked whether I wanted to use Microsoft
Outlook as my default for email. Now I can't get back to Outlook Express! I
want Outlook Express as my default. Please help.

Thank you.

You can still open Outlook Express the way you did before. After starting it
will nag that it is not the default mail handler and offers you to change
Other ways to change it are;
-in the Options dialog of Outlook Express
-in Control Panel-> Internet Options-> tab Programs
-in Control Panel-> Set Program Access and Defaults

Note that this is an Microsoft Office Outlook forum.

Outlook Express is family of Internet Explorer and Outlook of the Office

Here is the link for the right forum

Good Luck!
