[ad]Dear Computer lady,
I use Firefox, Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail.
I’d like to know if there is a setting in Mail that would allow me to read my messages, press the links in the e-mail, but stay in Mail? Now each time I press a link it takes me directly to Firefox.
I‘d like to read my messages in a batch and then check out the internet when I’m done. its annoying to have to keep clicking back and forth.
Thanks for your helpful e-mails. I hope you can help me out.
It sounds like your computer is working the way that it should.
Windows Live Mail is a program for reading email messages. It is not a web browser, so when you click on a link in an email message, your computer switches to your web browser, which in your case is Firefox.
There is no setting that would allow you to stay in Windows Live Mail (WLM) when you click on a link because the links lead to a web page, and WLM is not capable of displaying web pages.
I hope this helps answer your computer question.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
