Hello,

This tip is for advanced Windows users.

Do not edit your registry if you are not comfortable with such things.

To make AOL Webmail your default email application edit the registry key :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\AOL Webmail\Protocols\mailto

This is the value to make AOL Webmail your default email application:

If you do not want to make the registry edit an alternative is to try a different web browser called Flock that supports AOL as the default email application.

Why would anyone want AOL Webmail as their default email application?

The same kind of person who'd suggest a Web browser that was discontinued in 2011, and so has had no security updates in ages.

Why not question something for a change?
