Here’s a quick guide to creating a Gmail account.  Just open a browser like Chrome, Edge, or Firefox and go to Or click here.

You’ll be offered the choice to sign in, but you’ll want to click on Create  Account.

Choose For myself from the drop-down menu.

Enter your name. Then pick an email (username) address and your password. Take note of the username and password. You’ll need this information to log into your account.

They also want gender, date of birth, a phone number, and an additional email address to contact you at. You aren’t required to enter the mobile phone number, but it can come in handy for security issues.

Then you have to agree to Google’s terms of use.


That’s all there is to it.  You can open your new inbox right away.

And now you add that email address to an email client program. You can access this email address from any computer, tablet, or smartphone.

I hope that makes sense. If it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll be glad to help you.
