I have associated gmail as the default email client when opening mailto: links.

I am wondering if it is possible to share my Word/Powerpoint etc. files directly from the program as an attachment to my Gmail account.

I've tried clicking the email option in the share menu, but it won't recognize gmail as an email client.

"I have associated gmail as the default email client when opening mailto: links." - Where did you do this, in your browser? You probably need a desktop email client, such as Outlook or Thunderbird. –  Karan Feb 4 '13 at 0:35

You need to use the Google Desktop Apps which will require Google Chrome. It will allow GMail to appear as an installed application and set to a default mail client for your mailto: links. However, I use a custom domain through Google for serving as my mail server through GMail.
