Cannot send link in IE8

Still learning Windows 7... When I go to YouTube or other webpages the "send link to" is grayed out. How can I get this working? Didn't have to do anything with Vista.

Go to Default Program in Control Panel>Choose "Set program access and computer defaults". Choose Custom. Then unselect "use current web browser" and select Internet Explorer 8.

You say this "send link to" is greyed out for every website. I use IE8, where exactly is this option?

Okay finally figured out that in IE8 (Win 7) the Send Page or Email Link shows up in the task bar, not in the Page drop down as in Vista. Thanks for your help. Cannot figure out why MS would change stuff like this from one OS to the other. This to me was a often used task.
