Millions of online users have Gmail and Google accounts. Is there any difference between the two? A Gmail account is a free type of Google Account and used as an email address mail ending in @gmail.com. From your Gmail mailbox, you can access Google Docs, Google Sites, and Google Calendar. A Gmail account allows you to login into various Google applications such as Blogger, Map, and Picasa. A Google Account refers to a username and password that can be used in logging into Google applications like Search Maps, Sites, and Docs. Google Accounts don’t necessarily end with “@gmail.com”, it can be any other email addresses like one ending in “@yahoo.com” or “@aol.com”.
When managing your Gmail Account, it is a relatively easy process involving changing your name, removing dots from your email, changing your email address, changing or resetting your password, clearing Google Drive space and increasing storage. If you want to change the name that appears in your messages for your Gmail Account, all you have to do is to log into your account, click ‘settings’ in the top right corner; click the ‘accounts’ and ‘import’ or ‘accounts’ tab; click ‘edit info’ in the ‘send email as’ section; add the name you want to be shown on your messages; and click ‘save changes’ at the page’s bottom part.
