Google started as a search engine and since has added many applications. All these applications are available to you once you set up your Google account. Setting up an account is easy.

Step 1

Point your web browser to the main Google web page. The main Google page is the starting point for searches and other applications and features. You can sign up for an account, manage your Gmail or start a Google group from here.

Step 2

Find "Sign In" at the top right-hand corner. This is a link and will lead you to where you can sign into an account or create one.
