From the Google homepage, click on the Gmail access link or simply type the URL into the address bar. The screen should load to a page asking for the user's login information. Type in the username and password in the appropriate fields, keeping in mind that passwords are case-sensitive. If you don't remember the password, you can click on the "Need help?".
