Linda Cannot Click Links In Outlook Express
Hello... You have been so helpful and answered so many of my questions without me even to have asked them! THANK YOU!!! I do have one, however, that I've not seen addressed and I hate to even ask because I know it is something I did and is probably a simple fix... Here goes: When I'm in OE and there is a link back to IE and I click on it, it won't work. I have to look at bottom of screen and get the total address, write it down, open up IE, type it in, etc.,etc., and that is a pain!!! I used to be able to just click on the link and it would go right over! HELP!!! Linda K

After uninstalling another web browser such as Firefox or Netscape; or another email program like Incredimail, you may find that clicking a link in Outlook Express no longer works. Here's the first thing to try: Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options and select the Programs tab. Make sure the message "Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser" is checked. If not, then check it! Press Okay and close Internet Explorer. This will repair the problem where you've downloaded another browser and that browser made itself default; then subsequently you uninstalled the browser.

Next, open Internet Explorer again, click on Tools/Internet Options and again click the Programs Tab and make sure that "Outlook Express" is selected as your default e-mail program (it will appear next to "Email" in the Programs dialog). If is not shown there, use the down arrow to choose it from the list. Click "Apply" then OK. This will repair the problem where you downloaded another email program and it made itself default - and then you subsequently uninstalled that program.

If neither of these simple steps work for you see the suggestions in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article Q177045 (Internet Shortcuts in Outlook Express Don't Start Browser).
