  1. Yahoo Mail


    I use Yahoo Mail and I really like it. I had some issues, and re-installed Windows 10.
    During the start up . . . It asks you what browser, you want to run it with. All the
    browser were listed, along with basic mail. So, I thought, what the heck, so I picked
    basic mail. Boy, was I mistaken! It looks terrible.


    I thought, maybe if I uninstall my Yahoo Mail, I could start all over. But it's not even
    listed in the Control Panel, uninstall. If I type into the search box, mail.yahoo.com,
    it looks perfect . . . Or, if I say to Cortana "Yahoo Mail" It opens with the normal look.
    But, if I click on the shortcut, I get that basic mail. So my question is . . .
    How, can I fix this? And get a new program association.

    Thanks for reading, hope you have answers . . . Jerry

    :)

    yahoo messaging setup

    Hi Kieth,

    Regarding the issue that you had with making email replies on your Yahoo, have you tried performing a uninstalling and reinstalling the app?

    We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Uninstall the Yahoo Mail app.
    • Perform a soft reset by Pressing the Power and Volume down button simultaneously for 15 seconds.
    • Once the phone vibrates, release your hold and wait for the phone to finish rebooting.
    • Reinstall Yahoo Mail from the store.

    Let us know if the issue persists after following the steps above.

    I went this route and added passwords for yahoo mail. I might try this method above to get gmail to buck up! *Tongue

    @Bastet, this is probably what you were referring to the whole time.
