Making a Signature in Gmail

Get tired of typing your name at the bottom of every email?  Envious of your colleague's email signature, but just never get around to asking how to do it?  No problem.  It's easy!

From your inbox, click on the gear icon on the top right corner and click settings.

Scroll down until you see the section for "Signature".

Click in the box and type in the signature you'd like to have.  I have my name, title, email, and phone number.  I also have a school logo in mine, but you'll have to decide what works best for you.  You can copy and paste the image in if you'd like, or you can upload it from your computer by clicking on the image icon (the one that looks like a mountain range).  You can choose the font, size, color, and format that works best for you.

I generally like to click the check box for putting the signature before any quoted text in a reply.  That way it shows up after my message when I reply, instead of all the way at the bottom of the email chain.

Here is the step you can't forget!  Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click "Save changes" or else it will not save your signature.

That's it!  Done!

I hope you found this helpful.  Stop by again soon for more handy tech tips!
