However, if you are using a Windows PC or a Mac, this is not always the case. When you click on an email address on a web page, a PC or a Mac may try to open up Outlook, Mail, or whatever other email application is installed. This can be a real pain! Fortunately, there is a fairly easy solution, but it only works if you are using Google Chrome.
Here's how to set Gmail as the default email application within Chrome on a Windows PC or Mac:
- Open Google Chrome and go to your Gmail
- In the browser address bar, there should be a small "double-diamond" icon. Click on the icon
- In the window that appears, click "Allow" and click "Done"
- Now, when you click on a parents' email address in the Infinite Campus Gradebook (or any other web page), it should open a new Gmail message. You MAY prefer to open the new message in a new browser tab. To do that, RIGHT-CLICK on the email address and choose "Open link in new tab"
