Outlook.com isn't an email application, it’s just an email service.

Therefore like AlexMVP says you will need an email application or email client.

You could use Microsoft Outlook to download your outlook.com email but if you don't have this you could use any other email application. Mozilla Thunderbird is a good free one.

The Groovypost site has a step by step on how to set up Microsoft Outlook to download your Outlook.com email, here is the link. http://www.groovypost.com/howto/outlook.com-settings-pop3-smtp-imap/

The Outlook.com server addresses given in this step by step can also be used to set up other email applications such as Thunderbird.

Once you set up your chosen email application to download your Outlook.com email you can then set that application as the default.

If you let us know what email application you will be using then we can help you set that up if needed.

Not a great way to do this unless you setup Outlook or another Mail client like Live Mail.
