A Gmail account is straightforward to set up. You'll begin by creating a Gmail account, and throughout the straightforward Gmail sign up process, you'll select your Gmail account name. This course will walk you through setting up your Google account for Gmail, adding and editing contacts, and changing your mail settings.

Gmail Sign up

Before you can create a Gmail address, you must first create a Google account. Gmail will lead you to the Google account sign-up page. Basic information such as your name, birth date, gender, and location will be requested. You must also give your new Gmail account a name. You can start adding contacts and changing your email settings after you've created an account.

To create an account, go to
  1. By clicking the Create Account button, you may create an account
  2. A registration form will appear on the screen. Follow the instructions to enter the necessary information
  3. After that, enter your phone number to confirm your account. Google uses a two-step verification process to ensure your security
  4. A verification number will be sent to you through a text message from Google. Enter the code to complete the account verification
  5. Following that, you'll see a form where you may enter some personal information like your name and birthday
  6. I agree after reading the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy
  7. You will be given access to your account

Gmail login

When you first create an account, you will be automatically signed in. However, you'll almost always need to check in and out of your account once you're done. Signing out is especially important if you're using a shared computer (such as in a library or office) because it prevents others from accessing your e-mail.

To sign in, go to

After you've entered your user name (email address) and password, click Next.

Follow these steps to sign out:

Find the circle with your first initial in the top-right corner of the page (if you've already chosen an avatar image, the image will appear instead). Select "sign out" from the circle to sign out.

Set up your email account

Gmail's appearance and behavior may need to be tweaked from time to time. You can add a signature or a vacation reply, change the theme, or adjust your labels, for example. The mail settings are where you may make these adjustments.

To access your mail preferences, go to:

Select Settings from the gear icon in the top-right corner of the page. You can alter the desired settings by selecting one of the categories at the top. Some changes need to be made.

Gmail, like many other popular email services, allows you to retain a contact address book so you don't have to remember everyone's email address. Additional contact information, such as phone numbers, birthdays, and physical addresses, can be provided.

To add a contact, follow these steps:
  • From the drop-down menu, choose Google Apps
  • Select Contacts from the drop-down menu
  • Your contact list will show up on the screen. Click the "Add new contact" icon in the lower-right corner
  • Click Save once you've finished adding your contact information

Select Contacts from the Google apps drop-down menu to edit a contact. When you've discovered the contact you want to modify, click Edit Contact. You can now make any changes you like to the contact info. When you send an email to a new address, Gmail adds it to your contacts automatically. You can then go to your contacts and make any necessary adjustments to the person's details.

Importing e-mail addresses and phone numbers

If you previously had a contact list from another email address, then re-entering all of this information would be a lot of work. You can import your contacts as well as all of your email messages from another email account into Gmail. Among the email services supported are Yahoo!, Hotmail, and AOL.

Follow these steps to add extra accounts:

  • Select Settings from the gear icon in the top-right corner of the page.
  • Add a mail account by going to Accounts and clicking Add a mail account. Then, to import your mail, simply follow the directions on the screen.
