Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Through the magic if HTML5, Google Chrome, and Gmail, it is possible to click on "maillto:" links and have the Gmail web page open. It happens through the use and configuration of what Goofle calls "handlers." The same thing is possible with Google Calendar and "webcal:" links.
Options vary in other browsers......
In Firefox, open 'options', then click on 'applications'.
On the list, find 'mailto'. To the right, click on the action (probably says 'windows mail' default)
In the menu that drops down, choose whichever you want. I use Gmail, because that's the service I use. You can click on 'use other' and configure it to use Hotmail, which you mentioned, but I can't help you further with that.
This only sets a browser option. Remember that your Windows setting is separate, so if you wanted to send a file without the browser, you'd need to set your default 'mailto' choice through your 'start menu options'.
