[WIN7] Win 7 email

I am using Win 7 X64. On my Vista nd XP machines on the menu bar there is a heading called page. I could send a link or page by email.
In Win 7 those options are greyed out and I cannot send a link or page by email.
Anyone know how I can get this to work?

Thanks

Linky below addresses the issue. You'll need to install a mail client.

I have no send link in any Windows 7 menu bar; don't recall from earlier OSes, either; however, the long version of citizensin See Profile's reply:

Windows XP shipped with Internet Explorer 6; a web browser with such a menu bar option. IE6 included an e-mail client: MS Outlook Express 6. The send link/page option would invoke OEXP.

Windows Vista shipped with Internet Explorer 7; a web browser with such a menu bar option. IE7 did not include an e-mail client, but Vista did: Windows Mail. The send link/page option would invoke WinMail.

Windows 7 ships (shipped?) with Internet Explorer 8; a web browser with such a menu bar option. IE 8 did not include an e-mail client, nor does (did?) Win7.

Windows 7/Internet Explorer 8 require that you bring your own e-mail client to the party. (Note: Some computer OEMs include the Windows Live Essentials suite, which has an e-mail client. Microsoft apparently did not, maybe still does not.)

For completeness: Windows 8 ships with Internet Explorer 9; a web browser with such an option. IE9 does not include an e-mail client, but Win8 supposedly does. I can't verify that directly, though.

IE10 on Win 7. You have to go in and specifically select Live Mail.

Just wanted to point out that Windows 8 ships with IE 10, not IE 9.

As far as a mail client built into Windows 8, there may be some kind of App for that. I thought I saw some kind of live tile that said "Mail" with an icon of a envelop. I cannot comment on how good / bad it is, as I uninstalled all the "Apps". I've always installed a stand-alone mail client, which right now is Thunderbird. I've never used Outlook Express.

You don't have to select Live Mail, you can select any mail client you want, Live Mail is just one of your options

I went to IE 10, no joy. Thanks for all the input. Not a happy camper with Win 7. I liked my 98SE. XP sp3 was fine. Vista, ok but XP was better.
Now I have to decide if I want to try Win 8 Pro which I have.
Microsoft never heard of "if it ain't broke leave it alone"

What are you using for mail? On my IE10 and Win 7 you go to this:

tools - internet options - programs - set programs - set program access and computer defaults - select what you have
