With the latest upgraded version of Windows 8, i.e Windows 8.1, you can send links of web-pages directly by using the Mail App. Several screenshots of desktop, pictures, web links that we send and receive daily can be done in the conventional way with which we are used to but when we have the facility to directly share, we also must know about the process. The first and foremost requirement is to sign in your device using your Windows Live account. If you do not have a live or outlook account create one. Then the rest of the things are quite simple. Just hovering to the charms bar and hitting share you will be redirected to the available options like Mail, Post to Facebook and other applications. From there choose the one you need and then you will navigate to the App page of Mail. Add subject, writing or anything you want to add. Once you send the Mail, you can view the sent mail from the App itself. The following will take you through some easy and simple steps.

  1. Hi – thanks for this but how do you send the link itself (ie the URL) rather than a screenshot? A screenshot is useless for navigating to the page you want to share…. Iain

    • Hi Iain,
      You may add the link in the below of the screenshot as comment. The concept is that, without opening the link the recipient may guess the content of the link from the screenshot. It’s just like sharing a webpage as a screenshot, that means you don’t need prtsc (pint screen) or snipping tools to capture your screen. This method is not only applicable for capturing webpages. You may capture and mail your desktop or in-game snaps too.
