is this an IE11 bug ?


Senior Member
The issue described below applies to both my Win 7 Home Premium IE11 and Win 8.1 pro IE11

Issue :
IE11 Menu bar > File > Send > the Page by e-mail and Link by e-mail are grayed out.

I have to enable Command Bar > Customize > Add or remove commands > then add the 2 commands to the box on the right side. That way the 2 commands will appear next to Help icon.

Mine is working fine.....have a look.

Have you tried resetting your IE to default settings and checking your issue.

Resetting IE has no effect.
Wonder if using Google as default home page has any to do with that.
Thing is, Google has always been my home page since 4 years ago.
This issue happens only lately. Don't know how lately.

Chrome is my default browser as I don't think that's it.

do you have a local e mail client set up on the computer?
