Chrome: Heavy Google Docs users know it can be a pain when you get an email with an attachment -- even if it's in Gmail -- and want to save it in Google Docs for later. You have to view the attachment first, and then click to save it in Google Docs, and even then it only works if it's one of a few file types. With the Gmail Attachments to Docs extension for Chrome, saving one or all of your attachments is as easy as clicking a single link.


If you open an attachment from within your email program and then save it, the file may seem to have disappeared. Similarly, files you download from the web can be hard to find if you don't know where the default download location is. This guide is here to help new computer users retrieve those missing files.


Apparently the attachment size limit we casually mentioned last week was actually a new upgrade. All Gmail users should see a bump from 20MB to 25MB limits in their accounts, according to the Google Operating System blog. As Alex notes there, Gmail's convenient-but-crash-prone Flash uploading tool may make it very hard to actually get a 25MB file up and going, so clicking to use the older tool that uploads upon hitting "Send" is probably the way to go for gigundo-sized files.
