    GMail Desktop App - Suggestions?

    Hi, everyone, I would love your help ☺️

    I am getting a new laptop and need to access Gmail for work since I work as a marketing assistant for a leading eCommerce business; unfortunately, I use Vivaldi as my go-to browser since Chrome is a resource hog. I'd like to know if there any app or work-arounds for getting the full G Suite experience working on desktop instead of having to open Gmail in the browser each time I want to use it (which is constantly). I currently use Thunderbird for all my email accounts - but, obviously, this isn't G Suite optimized for all G Suite features. I'd be gratefully appreciative for your help.

    Thank you!

  3. Gmail suspicious activity alert?

    I'd definitely setup two-step verification like MailMan suggested. I actually just set it up myself, and have a similar feature on Facebook as well. Better safe than sorry! *Toast :toast:

    GMail Desktop App - Suggestions?

    All Gmail links fail

    Thanks to Caledon Ken...your suggestion had no effect.

    Thanks to bro67...Interestingly enough the Gmail link to this forum reply actually worked, as did your link to "How to Fix....." I tried steps 1 and 2 without success. Step 3 gave me the following screen, which didn't look like the article described. At any rate, the probem is unchanged...screenshot follows.
