Does anyone know how to do this?
I use MSN Live Messenger and have my Comcast, Gmail and Hotmail emails included.
Well, first of all, Gmail is an ONLINE e-mail service and not a program, so technically, one cannot "set" gmail as a default e-mailing program. There are two ways to access Gmail: 1) via browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc): http://mail.google.com 2) via e-mail program (Outlook, Thunderbird, the Bat, Eudora, etc..) If you decide to use a program to access the online e-mail service, then once you have the e-mail program configured, you may set it as the default mail program through Windows 7 Control Panel (click start, type "control panel", hit "enter", click "Programs", then click "Default Programs" - the icon, the click "set program access and computer defaults" ---- here select the installed e-mail program you wish to use as your default). I personally use Thunderbird to access my Gmail account. It's a great and versatile program. If that's what you decide to do as well, here's a quick tutorial how to set up Thunderbird to access your Gmail account: ---> Thunderbird 2.0 - Gmail Help Hope this helps
I have gmail set to launch automatically through chrome when an e-mail link is clicked. I'm pretty sure the instructions where on Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done. dot
