How do I get Windows 7 to make Opera Mail the default email ?

  • I am endeavouring to have Opera Mail the default programme on my laptop. I use Opera Mail exclusively - I ditched using Microsoft Outlook a number of months ago (although it is still on my computer).

    However the issue is that when anyone sends me a document (or there is one on a web page, etc) that has an email address in it (i.e. support@opera.com) clicking it opens Microsoft Outlook.

    I have attempted to change this by going to:
    Control Panel/Programs/Default Programs/Set Default Programs

    While the Opera Stable program is there in the list, the Opera Mail is NOT, only Microsoft Outlook (for email).

    The real question for you is how do I get Opera Mail added to the the Programs list?

    Please help - I am using A Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 - a basic reply (not a geek) would be great
