How do I get yarhoo off


Check to make sure you have no search toolbars installed, including the one from Yahoo. These bars install their home page on your browser and can alter your default search engine as well.



Navigate to Gmail in your browser at gmail.com. Sign in to your account and save your password in the browser. If you want to see Gmail as your home page each time you start your browser, go to the next step. otherwise, visit the page that you want to use, and then go to the next step.



In your browser\'s screen that may be called Options, Preferences or Internet Options, the General tab will let you set your home page. If you want to open to the page or pages you now have open when the browser starts, simply select to use the current page(s).



"OK" your way out of the Options page and you\'re done. Restart your browser to see the new settings at work for you. It will open your Gmail or other selected page each time it opens.



You will stay signed in to Gmail if you allow accounts.google.com to keep cookies until they expire. You will have to sign in to Gmail every time if either you allow session cookies only, or a security software clears all cookies when you close the browser.



I hope this helps!

Opening gmail has nothing to do with what version of windows you have. However, to answer your question. Go to the charms bar on the right side, in the search bar type "system" click go. It'll give you the option for "system" and will open a new window which will show you your current OS information.

Login gmail


It is not uncommon for a person to have more than one email account.
Most email service providers offer their customers a way to import email contacts and messages from other email accounts into the account maintained by the provider.

Some email service providers, such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail, have an email migration tool built in to their email interface.

Other providers, such as Comcast, direct their customers to use the TrueSwitch email migration tool.

Log in to your Gmail account.


Open the Gmail settings menu by clicking the pinwheel icon located in the top right corner of the window. Select "Mail setting."

Go to the "Accounts and Import" tab.
Click "Import mail and contacts."
Follow the on-screen instructions to import your address book from another email account into your Gmail account. Import Address Book Into Yahoo Mail Account

Log in to your Yahoo mail account. Click "Contacts."
Open the "View" drop-down menu. Select "All Contacts."
Open the "Tools" drop-down menu. Select "Import."
Click "Others."
Follow the on-screen instructions to import your address book from another email account into your Yahoo mail account.
Import Address Book Using TrueSwitch Tool

Go to the Esaya TrueSwitch secure transfer Web page. Check the box next to the "Terms of Service" statement.

How do I logon as administer


Hi,

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
Error Message: Unable to Log You on Because of an Account Restriction

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.
