I just open a web browser to gmail and I'm in. You didn't note any email app so tell more.
Remember that if you are using the W10 email app, I won't help. It's one of the worst email apps I've seen in decades. Nod to Thunderbird.
In Win 10, my gmail has been giving me a hard time, not so in Win 7. It refused to open emails until I finally found out that in order for it to do so, they would have to send me a code for verification. Once that was done, I was able to get my gmail in Win 10. Now, when i went to my Win 7, i had the same setup there with gmail, and this time when i tried to read my email there, I was greeted again for a code and etc. So now, i am able to read gmail in both systems. Today, I came across on a site that i liked and was asked if I want to subscribe to it. I said yes, and the only box that opened up was my gmail account...again, I was greeted with the offer to give me a code, in order to subscribe. I got confused..cause i don't like the idea that anywhere i go and liked, wheater to register or subscribe i am given a code number. With all these numbers, I do not want to screw up my email clients in both systems again. Is there any recourse to get out of this quagmire? I saw here a link in just asking about how to ignore registering and get into those areas that i maybe interested in. The link came back "403", cannot be found.
