That is because
That is because you can't simply drag and drop images into an email, they need to be attached like any other file. Alternately you can link them like on a web page, but then they need to be hosted somewhere.
So why not Chrome and GMail?
just tried to d & d into a gmail reply.
It took up the upper corner and obliterated the email form. Turned it into just a tab w/ a path and the attachment id.
Trying it now. Works fine.
Did you remember to click on Rich Text first?
now it turns out I can't have gmail my default on Vista.
now that's just confusing.
Gmail is not an app. It's a mail service. To meet your requirement I figured that all options were on the table so I thought OK, let's find a way.
I found a way.
Can you tell what you mean by "gmail by default"?
I'm a beginner. I've never had an app.
I wanted to make gmail my default email because it allows that big picture. By default I mean I want it to come up when I hit the email button in a website. Yes I downloaded the gmail notifier. Will now go try the icon one.
That's a NEW REQUIREMENT.
I don't see where you wanted to support the MAILTO tag in a web link.
Here's what I read in your first post "I need to drag a pic in to email."
I can do that. So case closed.
Edward noted Gmail Notifier but as you know, MAILTO is going away.
" This should still work to set gmail as the mailto handler and give you the Notifier. I never got the messenging API fully working.and now Microsoft is getting rid if it."
Maybe Windows is not the right system for you?
If you have a gmail account ...
you can set gmail as your default email application using gmail icon notifier (as opposed to the original gmail notifier).
Here is a link from which you can download it and read about it and what others say about it in Viswta:
sorry-I'm absolutely lost
downloaded icon notifier. Can't find what I'm supposed to do next. I read about people and Vista so I see it can work. I just don't see how
It's not just Vista.
If you read the comments you see it's author lamenting the removal of the API from the OS.
Next time can you reveal exactly what you want to do? I see we have a solution for your first question. Later you add more requirements.
I didn't realize I was talking with someone new.
I'm 60. I never used that as an excuse before just now. I downloaded the icon N but don't know what I do next. I think the other guy has given up on me. He might turn me in for being dense.
Not that at all.
You supplied what you wanted to do and I'll look to find a way.
If you change what you wanted later then my solution is then gone and we have to start over.
I'll think about another way.
What file did you download?
was it this one Gmail icon notifier setup.exe
or this one Gmail icon notifier patcher.exe
You should have downloaded the first one and only use the second one if you have a problem.
After downloading the setup file you double click on it to start the installation of the application then you follow the setup instructions. Can't lead you step by step as I have no intention of installing it and don't have Vista anyway.
If that has you confused you might try this one instead:
With that one you also have to download and install Adobe Air and the download links are both on the link I offered above this paragraph.
