Q: Send page / send link by email" option in IE 11

After upgrading to 8.1 and Explorer 11:


 I lost the " send page  /  send link by email" option in the file drop-down list in IE 11.  I have set Windows mail as my default email.

Answer

A:

Perhaps?


On your Command bar press Page, or right click on  Command bar button, Customize, add the Page button.

I had to right click on the blank area at the top of the brower, and then select Command bar.

Now I have the Page button and other goodies.

Thanks for the starting with the [almost] obvious.

I'm no beginner either ;-)

 I have the same problem, I did the rest, but nothing.

Window 8.1

IE 11

Hotmail/outlook

Hi,

To use Send page or Send link, you need to have a default e-mail program set.

Except for 2 exceptions (covered later) you cannot use a web-based e-mail service as the default. On Windows 8, you can't use the mail app as the default.

Windows Live Mail is popular and can easily be set to use Hotmail or Outlook.com as the e-mail service

Thunderbird is another popular e-mail program http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

Microsoft Office Outlook (not outlook.com) can also be set as the default e-mail program.

After installing an e-mail program, verify that you have a default e-mail program set from Control Panel> Default programs> Set program access and computer defaults> Custom> click the down caret.

The default e-mail program must be installed on the computer- e.g.Outlook Express, Windows Mail (Vista), Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, etc.

Web-based e-mail services cannot be made the default e-mail program except:
* Yahoo, with the Yahoo toolbar

* Gmail with the Google Toolbar installed
