Ok. I’m a little late on this one, but this is an awesome time-saving trick! Typically when I click on mailto links, it attempts to launch Windows Mail, which I don’t even have setup. So I got in the habit of just copying mailto links, opening up a new tab with Gmail and then pasting the email address. Well, no more. I just followed this super easy tutorial and now I’m opening all my mailto links directly in Gmail with the to: address already filled in. You too can wield this power; check it out!
