Is There a Way to Set Up Verizon e-Mail as Default for mailto: Links?
Enthusiast - Level 1

I am not technically savy so I need to have this question answered in an easy-to-understand manner (i.e. as if you're explaining to a 10-yo).  Seriously.  I would like my Verizon email account to open whenever I click on a web link for "mailto:" or if I merely want to send something from the web to one of my friends.

Is there a way to do this?  Is there a way to put a shortcut for my Verizon email on my desktop?

Thank you for any help you can offer.
