Could anybody tell me where to go to change how I send web pages by e-mail when I right click
I run vista

I'm guessing you're talking about the Accelerator function in Internet Explorer?

If so, in Internet Explorer, go to the tools menu, Manage Add-ons, then select Accelerators from the left hand side. You have an "email" option there.

Jadee - do you mean what OTT_B has said or do you mean - like when you get a good page up and want to e-mail page to a friend?

  Jadee 22:17 21 Jan 2010

Just copy the content of the Address Bar and Paste it into the e-mail.

Your friend should then be able to click on it when the e-mail gets to him.

Thats fine But you must be able to change the e-mail address when I right click
Thanks for your interest

What mail provider are you trying to send from? E.g. Yahoo!, AOL, Windows Live etc.

If you just want to send the link to the page, highlight the address by left clicking and wiping across it - right click and hit 'copy'. Put the cursor into the text area or the email - right click and hit 'paste'. When your friend receives your email, he'll be able to click on the link and go directly to that web page.

I am trying to change Windows live I want to change it to Google or Yahoo

Google is simple to do. Yahoo! isn't.

click here and click on "Send with Gmail". When prompted check the "make this my default provider" box and then click "Add"

That should do you.

(actually, given the option, click "Replace", rather than "Add". If you don't get a choice then don't worry about it)
