    My friend Hazel introduced me to you years ago until she got sick and I joined myself.

    Am using gmail, but thru an app called EasyMail for Gmail. I love gmail, but is there a way to get Gmail on our
    Desktop, Start Menu and Taskbar, so when we click on it, it goes right to the Inbox ??
    I can get to Gmail by signing in to our Google account, but everytime we have to sign in.
    Using Windows 10 Creator, IE, and Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Please reply to my email…..

      You can set Gmail as your homepage in your browser then create shortcuts for your browser on your desktop, Start menu and taskbar. I am not sure why you have to log in every time, unless you have your browser set to clear cookies when you close it, or your shutting your computer down every day (neither one is necessary). If typing in your username and password is a problem, why not use a password manager like LastPass that auto fills the username & password?

      We find it easier to check our Gmail accounts in an email program, like Thunderbird. That way you don’t have to log into Gmail at all, yet you have access to all your email; you can reply, forward, delete, or archive mail. And whenever you open Thunderbird (or other mail program) you’ll instantly see your Gmail inbox. And if you have more than one Gmail account you can check them too- all without switching accounts.

      Lots of solutions. I don’t find EasyMail an effective solution for desktopping Gmail. It’s just like having a browser open – plus, if you have more than one email account, you have to keep switching the account to see the mail.

      Hope this gives you some ideas.
