While there isn’t a direct way to send scanned documents to your Gmail account, you can scan the documents to your computer and attach them to emails in Gmail. Then, you can just send the documents to your coworkers, clients, and employees. You can also send the emails to yourself as an impromptu document archiving solution.

Step 1

Make your scanner is plugged into your computer, and that the scanner’s software is installed on your computer.

Step 2

Place your paper in the scanner’s bed and scan it. Different manufacturers and models use different scanning techniques, so make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions for saving the file as a PDF or TIFF file.

How to Make Google Chrome Open Email Links in Gmail?

Step 1

Launch Chrome.

Step 2

Click the icon of a wrench in the upper right corner of the screen and click “Settings” in the drop-down menu.

Step 3

Click “Show Advanced Settings.”

Step 4

Click “Content Settings” in the Privacy section.

Step 5

Click “Manage Handlers” in the Handlers section.

Step 6

Select “Gmail” in the Mailto drop-down menu.

Step 7

Click “OK” to save your changes.
