Windows 7: Send link by email is greyed out?


29 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 
Send link by email is greyed out?

I'm using IE8 and Windows live mail both set as default apps. I'm running ultimate 64 bit. Here's the thing: I press "alt" key to bring up file menu. Under file I choose "Send". The "send link by email" and "send page by email" are greyed out. IE8 is set to my default browser and Windows live mail is set as default for my mail client. Any ideas why the above is greyed out? This occurs on both the 32 and 64 bit browser....
Thanks
JJ

If you click on an email link on a web page, does Windows Live Mail start up? Also, if you click on the Page menu, is Send Page... / Send Link... disabled as well?

Have you tried resetting Live Mail as the default email application? When you go to the default applications control, click on Windows Live Mail, and then click on choose defaults for this program. Deselect all, save, close the app, then open it up again, click choose defaults.., select all, save.

Yes, tried that also. No luck. What's weird is this is my second installation with the same results. Do you have Windows Live Mail, and if so, does it work for you?

Just fixed it. Solution is: go to default program in control panel. choose "set program access and computer defaults". Choose custom. Next unselect "use current web browser" and select ie8. Do same for email. Click apply and it's fixed.
Thanks for help, it got me pointed in right direction...
