Where is the icon for Gmail located on desktop

Do what I do. Open up Gmail and in the browser address bar, grab the icon to the left of "www" and drag and drop it to the bar underneath. This places your email access up there whenever you open up your browser. Alternatively, drag and drop the same to your desktop and when you double click on it.......hey presto!

Why doesn't my gmail show up in the quick start tiles any more??

Where are these quick start tiles that you speak of? Do you mean the ones next to the start button in Windows XP? If so, you have probably added a new item there recently and run out of space or shortened the toolbar or it has been deleted.

Is there a ">>" after your last icon? If so, click on it and I bet you'll find what you're looking for. In this case, you can either delete another unwanted icon or make the Quick Launch toolbar bigger. To make it bigger, just drag its edge to the right. If you can't see any edge, right-click on a blank area of the taskbar and deselect Lock the Taskbar. When you've adjusted the size, you can lock it again.

If it has been deleted, either look for it in your recycle bin or create a new one as shown for Windows XP since you didn't specify your operating system.

Right-click on the desktop and then click New, Shortcut. When it asks for the location, type and click Next. You are now asked for a name so type Gmail. You can now drag this icon onto the Quick Launch toolbar. A copy will remain on the desktop, which you can keep or discard. If you lose another icon and you get a ">>", read above.

How do i put gmail on desks top for quick sign in

1. Open a web browser (examples: Firefox, Internet Explorer). Be certain it is NOT maximized! (in other words, make sure you can still see an open spot on your desktop).
2. Click in the URL window, type "google", then press CTRL + ENTER.
3. (Notice the tiny lock icon in the left-most position of the URL window). Left-click on the lock icon & Hold the left-click mouse button down.
4. Drag & drop the link onto your desktop.
5. It will automatically be created and renamed to GMail.

note: this will work for creating any shortcut from a web address, not just GMail.

How do I now sign in to my other gmail accounts from the main account page

You can enable offline mode for your Gmail account, which links it to your hard drive where it stores messages.
Not all browsers and operating systems are supported, including Safari 4 on a Mac running the Snow Leopard OS and Google Chrome on all platforms.
Also, if you have enabled the multiple account sign-in, the offline reading feature is unavailable. Multi-account sign-in is a feature that lets you stay logged in to more than one Gmail account simultaneously.
Gmail offline mode requires that you install the Google Gears plugin that handles the processing and storing of emails on your local hard drive.
Open a Web browser and sign into your Gmail account.
Click the "Gear" icon on the upper right corner of the page and select "Mail Settings."

Go to the "Offline" tab and click the "Enable Offline Mail for this computer" button.
Click the "Save Changes" button.

Click the "Allow" link when Google Gears asks for permission to access your Gmail account. Once Google Gears receives permission, it may take several minutes for the messages to be downloaded to your computer.
Click and drag the Gmail favicon on the address bar to the desktop screen.
Moving and dropping the icon creates a desktop shortcut for your Gmail account.
If you click the "Gmail" desktop icon, then it will load your Gmail account, regardless if you are online or offline.
