Creating an email account
Email is one of the easiest ways to keep in touch with family and friends. Here is how to create an email account using Gmail.
Open an internet browser like Chrome and go to "gmail.com" by typing it on the address bar and press Enter.
Since you don't have an account you need to click on the "Create an account" button.
Fill in your details on the right. One of the most important steps in creating an email account is choosing a unique username, which will become your email ID. Most people create usernames that include their name. In case, the username you choose is taken already, you will get other available options.Type in a password which you can easily remember but cannot be easily guessed by others. Usage of symbols like %, $ etc is also recommended.
Click on "Next Step".
Your account has been created. Whenever you want to access your email, go to "gmail.com" and type in your username and password. You can then start sending and receiving emails.
