How to Attach Your Google Account to the Galaxy Tab

By Dan Gookin

Don’t fret if you’ve failed to obey the prompts and neglected to sign in to your Google account when first configuring the Galaxy Tab. You can rerun the configuration setup at any time. Just follow these steps:

  1. Turn on or wake up the Galaxy Tab if it’s not already on and eagerly awaiting your next move.

  2. Unlock the Tab if necessary.

  3. Touch the Apps Menu button.

    The Apps Menu button is located in the upper-right corner of the Home screen. Its icon is shown in the margin.

  4. Choose the Settings icon.

    The Settings screen appears, which contains commands for configuring and setting options for the Galaxy Tab.

  5. Choose Accounts & Sync.

  6. Touch the Add Account button in the upper-right part of the screen.

  7. Choose Google Accounts.

    At this point, you’re signing into your Google account on the Galaxy Tab.

Your goal is to synchronize your Google account information on the Internet with the information on your Galaxy Tab.

  • The information synchronized on the Galaxy Tab includes the following items from your Google account on the Internet: the contact list, Gmail messages, calendar appointments, and other “Googly” information.

  • One of the first things you may notice to be synchronized between your Tab and Google is your Gmail inbox.
