FAQ

Q: Do I have to start from www.google.com in order to sign in to my Google account?

A: Nope!  You can begin from any Google-related page, whether that be the main sign in page through the search engine or at www.gmail.com, www.google.com/drive, etc. 

Q: Do I need to keep signing in as I switch between different Google Apps?

A: No, you will stay signed into your Google account throughout your browser session or until you actively choose to sign out.  In other words, by signing in through the search engine (as documented in the instructional video), you will be automatically logged in when you access your Gmail, Drive, or YouTube accounts.
