    MSFT Stole My Mac!

    I used to be able to open links from OE into Safari as my default setting. Somewhere along the line even though I have always replied in the negative to IE's query about making it default, it did it anyway. Now IE gets the nod when I'm clicking links from OE.

    Does anyone know how to get control back to my Mac from MSFT's clutches? I wonder what other defaults Mr. Softie has insinuated onto my Mac? Do I need to drop OE entirely? I like that application but if MSFT insists on monopolizing Macs too as part of its megalomaniacal strategy then that's too much.

    • I don't use OE but the standard OS X Mail application. When I clicked on a link in a e-mail message I got a report that "Safari Beta has expired". That tipped me off that I had some older versions of Safari floating around my hard drive. I deleted (trashed) them. Then I went to a Safari web-page that I had saved and CMD-I and changed all documents of the .html type to open in the latest Safari version (1.0.1) (v85.6). Now my e-mail URLs will automatically open in the latest Safari. Perhaps you could try the same tactic?
