Windows 7 Explorer Toolbar - No email option for networked drives
Posted on 2014-02-27
This is a fairly light weight question I'm sure but I don't have the answer and a customer wants to know.
In the Windows 7 pro Explorer toolbar there are a number of 'dynamic' options which appear according to navigation context. If you navigate to a local folder on, say, c: drive and highlight a file that could be sent as an attachment (PDF, DOC, etc) then the Email option is displayed in the toolbar.
If you navigate to a network drive, say, myserver\folder and hightlight a similar file no Email option is displayed in the toolbar. Why is this and can it be changed.
I know there are many otherways to achieve this but the customer doesn't want to confuse his aging and not very PC savvy users. I can't say why it isn't displayed, can see no reason.
Can anyone help please.
