Customer Question
I've had a gmail account...
I've had a gmail account for years. ***@******.***. I'm on a Mac. I open Safari, then Gmail - Inbox at the top of my computer screen. That's all I've needed for years. Today, instead, I get a start up Google screen. Can you help? Thanks!

Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Do you want to set Gmail to load automatically when you open Safari ? If so, do the steps below;

You can change it back to Gmail. Open Safari. In Safari, click on Safari menu at the top left next to Apple menu. Click on Preferences. Click General tab and under General tab, change the home page to www.gmail.com

Close the window. Restart Safari.

This will open your Gmail from now on when you open Safari. Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
