If you frequently use Gmail in the same computer, you can set up the Web browser to remember your email login name and password. This saves you the trouble of entering the same user details every time you log in to Google. Once you save your login info, the browser will anticipate your full username every time you type it in the Gmail sign-in page, and fill in the correct password as well.
