    Is it possible to email a link via Metro browser?


    On windows phone I can share a page, i.e. email someone the link to the page I am currently viewing.

    Is this possible inside the Metro version of IE?

    Thanks,
    -Bob

    you could use snap, have email on left of screen and browser on right of screen, cut and paste page address into an email easily.

    Not quite what you are looking for but would work.

    Ha, OK. Ingenious but I am trying to confirm what doesn't work and pointing out it is not consistent vs. WP7. Thanks
