Windows 7: Email Error Association

12 Mar 2012   #1

Win7 32 Bit Home
Email Error Association

I often want to send an email attachment from my desktop or other directory. When I right click on the file, and click send to email recipient, i get an error telling me no email program is associated to perform this action.

I don't have any stand alone email program s installed. I strictly use web based email (gmail & hotmail) as my mail programs. I do not wish to install a stand alone program such as outlook or Thunderbird.

How can I associate my request to email to a recipient to automatically go to my web based email platform (gmail or hotmail) and send the mail?

I cant seem to find a hack or a small program to install to tell win7 to use my web based email as my program!

Any suggestions??? Thanks!!

This has been discussed here before. I wonder whether these two solutions actually work:
