    Default Yahoo Email Win 8 IE10

    I have seen numerous search results from Google, but none of them work

    I just sent my computer in to be worked on a month ago. I had this working before then

    It was factory reset so this is a computer/browser issue, nothing with the restore

    I had Yahoo Email set as default. For each of my previous computers, I did too.

    Even when I got this in March

    I cannot find the link telling me how to do it: I remember seeing it could be done with a particular version of Yahoo toolbar And I saw one that would install the mail plugin with Yahoo Messenger

    Neither has been there when I installed several vesions

    Any help would be most appreciated

    Hi Eric,

    Can you tell us a bit more about how you'd like to use Yahoo?
    Do you use it via web mail (in your web browser)?
    Or do you want to use the built-in Mail app that appears on the Windows 8 Start Screen?
    Or do you have other email software that you want to use?

    Thank you David

    I am looking to use it as my web email default program

    In the past you had to download Yahoo Toolbar and there was a mail plugin, or it was in Messenger

    I can't find a link to any of those that have the mail plugin. I must have downloaded 8 toolbars and Messengers
