Windows 8.1 - How to add apps to 'Use these apps to share'

Under Share

'You dont have any apps that can share this content'

How do I add Outlook or another programs?



I do not see that capability at all in the Share charm or any documentation about it. I do not think it is for sharing applications, but rather folders (One Drive) and sharable devices.



I use sharing in the very traditional pre-Windows 8 sharing methodology. It is for sharing folders and sharable devices (some screens can be shared).

Here is a Microsoft article about the use of the Share Charm

You may also need to make changes in Network and Sharing Center, Advanced Sharing options depending on what you wish to share.



Can you add Windows program like outlook to the list of shared apps?

Also, when you say Outlook, you cannot share PST files this way. Not supported.
