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:

  1. Open the message containing an attachment.
  2. Click ‘View as HTML’ at the bottom of the message.
  3. 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.
