By Dan Gookin

The Galaxy Tab can be home to your various online incarnations, including your email accounts, online services, subscriptions, plus other digital personas. It’s a good idea to add those accounts to your tablet to continue the setup and configuration process.

With the tablet on and unlocked, follow these steps:

  1. Touch the Apps icon.

    The Apps icon is located on the Home screen.

  2. Open the Settings app.

    You may have to swipe the Apps screen right or left to locate the Settings app.

    After touching the Settings icon, the Settings screen appears. It lists items for configuring and setting tablet options.

  3. Tap the General tab.

  4. Select the Accounts category.

    You see any existing accounts, although you might see only your Google account at first.

  5. Tap Add Account.

  6. Select an account type from the list.

    For example, if you haven’t yet added your Google account, choose Google.

    Don’t worry if you don’t see the exact type of account you want to add. You may have to add an app before a specific account appears.

  7. Follow the directions on the screen to sign into your account.

    Generally speaking, you sign in using an existing username and password. Some accounts may have an option that lets you create an account when you don’t already have one.

You can continue adding accounts by repeating these steps. When you’re done, press the Home button to return to the Home screen.
