Sending a page or link by email opened on 'Start screen'?

    Actually I've found out you can send a link of the page on the screen when on the Start screen. Open the 'Charmsbar', select 'Share' & then 'Mail'. I tried this & sent it to two people who didn't have Win8 & they both were able to open the link ok & download the site I sent.

    When you try to open the link using W7, it asks what program to use and the link only works with W8 apps.

    I must be doing something wrong!
