Open Google Chrome         

Click the three vertical dots in the upper right of the screen

•          Choose settings from the menu

•          At the bottom of the settings window, click Advanced which expands selections.

•          Click Content Settings

•          Click handlers > click the slider to allow sites to become default handlers for protocols

•          In another window, Open Gmail in Chrome. A message pops up “ wants to Open email links”

•          Click Allow.


Open your Gmail account.There's a button that appears after this configuraton is complete called Protocol Handler which is in the search bar of Gmail (upper right corner). That needs to be set to "allow".
