    Windows 10 EMAIL APP when I clik on a email LINK in a web site/page,


    unlike Win 7, it does not open my browser, open my YAHOO email link, then PASTE the email address in that link in the COMPOSE box. ONE STEP, IT DOES ALL THE WORK.

    Win 10 ANOTHER MATTER: IT starts some window/PAGE/APP labeled as "INBOX YAHOO" that is a want-to-be email agent.
    I DONT WANT the inbox but to send an email which it has no commands to to so.
    So, I have to:
    copy /cut the address as it did plug it in its TO: box.
    Start my browser,
    Start Yahoo
    Paste the address into Yahoo. then can rock & roll.....
    LOTS of wasted efforts ..

    Have tried to get help from SUPPORT.MICROSOFT.COM" = Useless.

    If you used Win 7, had to use a link for an email instead of the "words" ..., "COPY-ABLY ADDRESS" you may know the problem.

    Of course, if not a link, you copy/paste yourself, but those "links" are "cute" but not practical for Win 10 they HIDE the actual email address.

    Why Win 10 wanted to change that I have no clue as Win 7 does this problem, PERFECT.
    Why Win 10 wants to be a "go between" which makes us use its app and is useless, and has no ability to send the message? I have no clue either. Maybe it was "busywork" for the programmer.

    ANY one fix this double, triple work Win 10 gave us?

    :)

    Setting up Win 10. DO NOT WANT its default things like MAIL but want to stop or use YAHOO Email.

    none of these understand what looking for, thanks but, does anyone remember Win 7?

    You could go to a web site: Joe's hot dogs, and under: "contact/email", "Joe's web programmer supplies a LINK and NOT, English, a readable ADDRESS. In this case you can not SEE, READ the address to COPY into a web site Email service.

    LOTS of people that code websites do NOT supply a email ADDRESS in English but a LINK, hidden and unreadable as they think is a CLEANER" LOOK.

    If in English and not a link, one can bring Yahoo email web site, and copy a "link" as Yahoo like a real email address.

    to copy and paste.

    IN Win 7, if one would CLIK on the link, Win 7, would recognize it as an email address, would bring the Yahoo email web site AND COPY THAT ADDRESS IN THE "TO " address blank field, and then, you just entered to SUBJECT.....

    Win 10 by default, brings up a page that "looks like" an email blank but has no option, etc and wants you to enter a message after that, who knows what Microsoft does it it.

    I would LIKE Win 10 to "take me to Yahoo site directly" LIKE Win 7 did..

    They are what are usually called Mailto links. The other posters are talking about opening your mail to get your messages.

    Perhaps Angela can assist with the problem now we've clarified it.

    Windows 10 EMAIL APP when I clik on a email LINK in a web site/page,

    I don't know myself (but see below for what I've found for you) how that should work with browser based email, which I only use if I have a problem. I can confirm it works properly with an email client:

    There's the hyperlink on the page, and Thunderbird correctly launched with the email address.

    You may wish to check how your email client (browser) is specified- and how that protocol is handled.
    See Mailto

    As I say, I've no idea myself how that would work with a browser.

    "unlike Win 7, it does not open my browser, open my YAHOO email link, then PASTE the email address in that link in the COMPOSE box. ONE STEP, IT DOES ALL THE WORK."

    What email client were you using in 7, Live Mail, Outlook or other ? On Windows 10 Mail app, the address link will open in your preferred email client. On mine, it opens in Thunderbird. Start with Settings/Apps/Default apps to see that the base settings are correct. If so, then dig deeper by following dalchina's settings advice.
    But If you want to do this entirely on your browser, why not just read and write your yahoo! email on your web browser ? IE: Open browser, open yahoo! mail, click address or web links in message to compose, DONE. Or are you saying clicking an address link on a web page doesn't open yahoo! mail ? If that's the case, it's your browser settings.

    Interesting in that it appears this customerizatin was needed in Win 7.
    I had 7 from the beginning, DOS 1.0 to Win 10 all except skipped 8.
    I do not remember ever having to do the before in any, it just seem to "work" if may have asked me for my email specs but did not know i was doing but 10 may do it at detail level.

    Thanks.
