When I read an email in my Yahoo Mail and click on a mailto: link it tries to open Outlook but since I don't have it installed nothing happens. I would like it to open a reply to the email in Yahoo Mail. How do I set this up. I'm running Windows 7.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Found the answer by exploring the Control Panel:
Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Set Default Programs.
In the list that appears on the left of the window click on Google Chrome, then click on the link "Choose defaults for this program" that appears at the bottom of the window.
In the next window to appear, under the Protocols section click on the MAILTO check-box to select it, then click the save button at lower right.
