Have prob gaining fast access to my gmail from laptop. have to search through scrolls before i get site which auto brings up my account


Not sure why you're doing searches for gmail access. You obviously have never been shown how to use a computer properly. Stop searching for gmail.
Go to the google page. If it isn't your home page then type in the ADDRESS bar - NOT the search bar - google.com. This will bring up the google page for your country. Click on the gmail link in the top right of the page. It will take you in to your inbox or it will ask you to log in.
Once you're at your inbox, bookmark the page so you have it for future visits.
