How to Share Web Links via Email in Windows 8

  • MORE


Windows 8's Share charm allows you to send links to friends and family through apps like Mail, People and more with just a few clicks. This saves you from having to copy and paste the desired link, open a new browser tab and log into your e-mail account, which takes a lot longer than distributing a link with Share does.


  1. Open a webpage you'd like to share.

  2. Open Charms and click Share.

  3. Click Mail.

  4. Type in a recipient's e-mail address. You can also add a message to the e-mail by clicking on and writing in the field labeled “Add a message”.

  5. Click on the Send button below the image of the envelope in the top right hand corner of the screen.

    What are charms in step two how to forward website to friend. Poor way of telling how to forward since not all people like me know what those words mean. Please put it in language a dumb ass like me knows what you mean
