    Anyone got any ideas on how to get internet explorer 8 right click send to mail recipient option back into the context menu?

    Its was there for firefox, ie6..i think ie7...but not in ie8.
    Both ie8 and and windows live mail are set to default programs....

    Also, for some reason when i click on the mail icon in the internet explorer toolbar, it will open up windows live mail, but it will not create a new message. i just open and sits there.

    But i i use the regular windows explorer context send to option, it loads up the new message just fine...

    Any and all suggestion are greatly appreciated.

    Is your Windows Live Mail set as your default Mail application (within IE 8 options) ? If not, try that! Usually fixes it
    This is sometimes treated differently in the Set Programs defaults you find in control panel or the start menu..

    do you have the menu bar activated from toolbar dropdown selection? do that then you can click file & there you will see the option to send link via email.
