    I think my brain is officially dead, I just got a new laptop and am in the process of setting up all the peripherals and making crap the way I want it. When I hit the button to go from Messenger to my inbox, it takes me to outlook, and to get outlook to work with hotmail, you need a $20 a year subscription, which is crap.

    How can I make this link take me directly to my normal hotmail inbox? I pulled it off on our other two computers, I just can't remember how.

    Go to your Windows Explorer bar on top. Click on Tools. Go down to the bottom and click on Internet Options. Look on the far right for Programs and click on that tab. Look for the section that says e-mail. Click on it and it will have a drop down menu. Choose Hotmail as your default for e-mail.
