Dear PC Doctor:

Every time I want to email my co-workers, I have to type each one’s name into the ‘to’ box. It takes a long time and I’m always sure I’ve skipped someone. Is there a way to create a work group in gmail so I always send to everyone each time?

Thank you,


Dear KJ:


Open you gmail account. Switch from “Mail” to “Contacts.” Click in the box to left of the name of each person you want in the group. At the top of the screen, you’ll see what looks like three heads. Click that. You’ll get a pull down menu for Groups. Choose “Create new.” A dialog box will appear. In the box, type the name you want to use for that group. If you want to add more people to the group, follow the same steps and click apply after adding each name. Then, when you want to send the whole group a message at the same time, type the name of the group on the “to” line. Gmail will pull in the individual addresses of everyone you have added to the group.

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy computing!
