I'm going to guess that it can't be done. Setting a default Email client involves declaring an application to be opened for mail. Gmail is done through a browser, not a mail application.

 

However...you can set gmail as the default to open "mail to" links...if this is any help ....

 

I am unaware of the browser you are using....in Firefox, you click on options, then applications...then mailto...highlight the line...then scroll down to 'gmail' and select that as the default.
