Choosing the right platform for an e-mail address can prove to be quite easy or confusing, depending on what you’re used to. Gmail is one platform that can deem useful and prove to be the best bet, wherever, whenever.
Gmail is short for Google Mail and is easily millions of users’ choice due to its easy interface and its fascinating features. With the advancement in technology, desktop computers and laptops are easily converted to smartphones or tablet computers which can be easily carried around as long as Internet access is available. Due to such, an application is available for any kind of provider; let it be Samsung, Apple, among others.
Another is its storage. Where else can you find an e-mail provider that has around 10GB (and counting!) of storage? A Google Search bar is also available at the top of the browser which allows you to search for what you’re looking for right from your inbox. Best of all, all this (and even more) is for free.
If you’ve chosen Gmail to be your one and only provider, you’re in luck. This article provides a step-by-step preview as to how to create an e-mail address with Gmail.
Step 1: Open any browser, let it be Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, among others. Type in http://www.gmail.com on the address bar and click enter. Immediately, you will be redirected to their front page consisting of a simple interface with a readable font.
Step 2: Click on the red CREATE AN ACCOUNT button on the top right of the screen. It will redirect you to their sign up page containing boxes which need to be filled up as appropriate.
Step 3: Once you’re done filling in the necessary data, click on the blue NEXT STEP button which will lead you to the next page where you can create a Google profile now or later (you can skip this by clicking on the Next Step button).
Step 4: If you chose to create a profile later, a welcome screen will appear such as the image below.
Step 5: After the screen above appears, you may choose to click on the Continue to Gmail button or sign out. If you chose the former, the screen would immediately direct you to your inbox where four new messages will be greeting you as seen in this picture.
