How do you associate a file with gmail?

How do I associate a file to gmail?  I have a PDF that I need to send someone via email.  I have already chosen Chrome as the default program, but there is no option for email association.  Can someone walk me through this?  Thanks for the help?

You can't send an actual PDF to someone via email directly; instead, you have to send it as an attachment to an email.

You go into your email app, create the email, and then there is usually something you click to add an attachment, whereby you find the PDF file on your  local drive and select it.

Also, some email systems have size limites on attachments, so large PDF files could not then be attached.
