When I try to email pictures made on my digital camera using the "Send To" command, I get this prompt: "There is no email program associated to perform the requested actions. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an Association in the Default Programs Control Panel." I am using gmail as my installed email program. Any help will be appreciated!

Gmail isn't installed. It is web based email, not an email client such as Outlook.

Hello, dburch.
The Send To option in Windows expects to use an installed email client program. You are using a web based email program, Gmail, so there is no installed and configured email client program. To email a picture through Gmail, you need to go to Gmail and compose an email, then attach the picture to that email for sending.

If you want an email client installed and don't have Microsoft Office with Outlook you MAY want to look a eMClient.

As long as you don't need to use more than two email addresses it is free.
