My netbook already launched GMail when I click on mailto links but my desktop did not.Somewhere along the line I'd set the netbook to do this, but I couldn't figure out how.
Google suggests using Notifier but if you're using Chrome perhaps you're already using an extension for that. Notifier isn't a resource hog, but I don't need over redundancy.
This MS Help site: http://windows.micro
Tells you to go here:
To designate default actions for programs and file types.
There you can set Google Apps defaults, including MAILTO links on the web. You still need Google Apps installed, but that gives offline email which is something I want and already use.
While you're at is, why not install Google Pack (which includes GApps) and let it handle package management for you? You can ignore the Spyware Dr w/ AV and install Security Essentials which is free and runs on XP and above Windows clients.
Any thoughts on doing this with GAFYD?
I don't see why not. You just have to sign in with your GAFYD account and enable Offline mode.
I guess I should give it a shot.
Also, for your readers, here's a link to install Google Apps: http://pack.google.com/intl/en/installer_eula.html?ci_gapps=on&hl=en
When I click a MAILTO link it opens GApps and loads my GAFYD account but then asks me to create a gmail account. This may be a separate issue though.
