    Share using the Mail App in Microsoft Edge works about half the time


    When I try to share a website using the Mail App in Microsoft Edge, the first time I try the Mail App window opens, stays blank, and does nothing else. The second time I try to share the email completes and I'm able to send. I then try to share another site with the Mail App, and once again it hangs with an open Mail Window. Again, trying it a second time it seems to be successful. I was wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this lately, and if anyone has come up with a solution/work-a-round. Thanks.

    :)

    Troubles since Windows 10 update:

    Mail app no longer works.

    Edge only works about half the time.

    Computer seems slow.

    Tried to download the trouble shooter. no luck.

    Share using Microsoft Edge

    Hi,

    I have Mail installed. Facebook is working now but still can't share via Mail. Can you advise how to do this?

  4. Share using the Mail App in Microsoft Edge works about half the time

    I have the same experience on a Win 10 32bit FCU (although I have had this problem on every since the original CU). I have also found that when it fails, the email is actually waiting in the Drafts folder in Mail. I haven't had time to look for a solution, but I had planned on logging out of the connected email accounts then reinstalling the Mail & Calendar app. If I get to this sometime this week I'll let you know what I find.

    Thanks. I'll look forward to hopefully hearing back from you. Just fyi, I've uninstalled accounts and reinstalled the Mail/Calendar/People apps, but to no avail. I did discover something new just yesterday....I added a second account to the Mail App, and now when I click Share and then the Mail App, it opens a window asking me which email account I want to share from. I then select my main account and it goes consistently to the email with with no problem. Not sure why that helps, but I thought I'd pass this information on.
