Gmail login at http://mail.google.com or http://mail.gmail.com is easy to accomplish but if you are a beginner might want to master the steps well to overcome most of the common problems. To check mails you have to log into your account and there are many ways of accessing the Gmail sign in page even without typing the url directly. If you visit Google.com, along the top there is always a link to Gmail login page taking only a single click.
While at the Gmail login page shown below you have to provide login details, username and password. For the username you do not have to type in the Gmail email address in full. If your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you just enter “yournames” into the username field and that saves your time when login in. As for the password you have to enter it correctly in full and it is definitely case sensitive.
Before you sign in, specify whether you want to stay signed in by using the “Stay signed in” check box. This is helpful in saving time as you will not need to enter Gmail login username and password every other time. You should however weigh in your security and privacy concerns so you should only do that on your own computer. Leave the box unchecked if you are using public computers as you might forget to sign out after checking your emails.
After entering the Gmail login details in their respective fields, you can go ahead and click the blue “Sign In” button which takes you straight to the inbox of your Gmail account to check mails. Once there the page should look as shown below.
Even after entering the Gmail login details correctly, sometimes you may encounter problems accessing your account. It may not load successfully for a number of issues that can be resolved. If the Gmail login results to a blank page, clear cache, browsing history, download history and cookies. You may also want to scan your computer for viruses. A slow internet connection prevents Gmail login especially to the standard version so during the loading of the account click the link for “Basic HTML version” which loads faster although leaves out additional features. You will also not be able to sign in incase you have forgotten the password for the Gmail account. In that case simply “can’t access your account?” link and if you provided a mobile phone number and an alternate email address it would be possible to recover the password in a few steps.
