    On my P.C. I would like to be able to click on an email link and be directed straight to my Gmail to start composing the mail, instead I am directed to Windows Live Mail (which I don't want to use) after uninstalling Windows Live I am directed nowhere, I just get a pop-up asking me to associate an email program to perform the requested action

    My question is...is there a plug in for Gmail that allows this to be done ?

    As always thanks :)

    I just checked, and when I click on an email link it sends me right to Gmail. Of course, I never set up any other email on the phone.

    Will the browser let you associate email links with GMail?

    You need to get the Google Notifier for your PC. It looks like a small envelope and sits on the top of the screen. You can left click that and chose compose mail.

    I'm moving this to off topic since we are talking about a PC here.

    Sorry, I guess I didn't read your first question closely enough.

    Depending on your browser, it should let you set what you want to use for your email client. I'm using Firefox, and I have it go straight to Gmail. I just had to change the setting in the Tools >> Options >> Applications menu.

    Glad you got help though.

    No, my question was not clear, I did not specify P.C. at first, I am at home and have installed the Notifier that Hook referred and it works like a charm
