Provide desktop access for Windows® users
Microsoft Windows® users in your organization can place icons on their desktop for launching Gmail, Google Drive, and Calendar directly into their Google Apps account. They do this by installing Google Apps access points that are specially configured for your domain. After that, double-clicking, say, the Gmail icon, launches their Gmail account in a Chrome browser window.
When users download the access points, they also have the option to set Gmail as their default email program.
To provide Windows users with Google Apps desktop icons:
- Sign in to the Google Admin console.
- Click Company Profile > Profile.
- Scroll down to the Google Apps desktop features section to find the download link for your domain's access points.
- Provide this link to your Windows users, who can then download and install the access points.
