You cannot setup yahoo as a default email client, lol. If you want to use yahoo mail, you go to yahoo.com and click "sign up". Then when you want to check your mail, you go to yahoo.com and click "mail".

If you want to use Windows mail you need "Windows Live Mail".

If you want to use Google mail, go to Google.com and follow same directions as I listed for Yahoo mail.

You cannot setup a websites mail as your Windows mail, not sure who you heard that from or who this "everybody" is. Do you hear voices?

Look Numnuts, I already have Yahoo as my email, but when I want to forward a web page I right click on it, the only option that I have showing is Windows Live Mail and all I want to do is have Yahoo as my option. Are yo saying that I cannot install Yahoo as my default mail client?

I use Chrome browser and in the settings, I added the extension called Mailto:Yahoo! Mail
made by CardCapture1.
It allowed me to use Yahoo mail as default whenever I click on an email link (e.g., CraigsList).
