Opening files as HTML with Gmail
December 15, 2005 Comments Off on Opening files as HTML with Gmail
If you’d like the contents of your attachment to appear in
a new browser window without having to download the file,
view the attachment as HTML. Here’s how:
- Open the message containing an attachment.
- Click ‘View as HTML’ at the bottom of the message.
- When you’re finished reading the attached file, close
the new browser window to return to Gmail.
Viewing attachments as HTML is a quick and easy alternative
to downloading files. You can view the following types of
files as HTML: .pdf, .doc, .xls, .ppt, .rtf, .sxw, .sxc,
.sxi, .sdw, .sdc, .sdd, and .wml.
This is going to be so useful to me as I don’t have Microsoft Word. I tried it out today on a .doc file and it printed out really nicely.
