    you have to type the entire thing in by hand, and then it works. Cut and paste will not do it.

  33. wolf peter says:

    Reason enough to change back to IE-9 – let me know when Google installed the button! BTW.: I cannot see that Chrome is faster then IE-9 – really NOT!

  35. jelabarre says:

    DOESN'T WORK. Not so much because the link itself is bad, but because Google Chrome does NOT respect the operating system/desktop's setting for "default mail handler". All it does is open a new browser window, and goes absolutely NOWHERE. And with all the re-designs of Chrome, you can't even find the excessively hidden settings that let you define a separate mail handler (in my case, Thunderbird).

  36. itechxxiv says:

    Yep, just fix the quotes and it works fine.

  37. L. J. says:

    Everything worked fine with one problem I don't understand. When I tried out the newly created e-mail bookmark, my AOL ISP opened, although it was not connected since I was connected to Google Chrome. I was able to select the people I wanted to send the web page to and click "Send Later" on the AOL service. Don't have any idea how this happened, but at least I can now send web pages while viewing Chrome by using AOL. That's around the block and up the street when the solution is for Chrome to fix their problem! What are they waiting for?

  38. Gaye Weinman says:

    I use Google, I was leery of this application working, and it didn't. I followed the instructions to the "t" but it just doesn't work. Tried it several times. So, what is the trick?

  39. MindL says:

    How do you get it to change the application? It launches Mail not Outlook. Thanks!

  40. Rachel says:

    Thank You very much, very helpful, one problem I’m hoping you can help with – How do I get it to use my gmail to send the link instead of AOL. It automatically opens AOL?

    TY
