I want to make Google Chrome default mail app, in other word I want to make Google Chrome to open "mailto" content type like Firefox as mentioned in this answer in my Gmail in Google Chrome. Also I have gone to "Settings > Details > Default Application" to make Google Chrome default Mail application, but it is not available in the Mail list. What should I do?
This has to do with modern websites offering "service handlers". First, make sure you allow service handlers in Chrome, then allow Gmail to use its service handler.
- In Google Chrome, open Settings,click Advanced, and under Privacy and Security, click on Content Settings.
- Click on "Handlers" and set the option "Allow sites to ask to become default handlers for protocols" to "on".
- Go to Gmail and log in.
- You will see a new symbol in the URL bar. It looks like a double diamond. Click it.
- Set "Allow mail.google.com to open all email links?" to Allow.
