When trying to log into my gmail account on my PC, I get the error message "That username is taken." But I know as a fact, that the user name is the name I registered. As a matter of fact on my Android phone I am still logged in into that very same adress. How can I log in?

  • Are you using the full address? Try that. Nov 25 at 18:36
  • It isn't clear what you mean by 'log into Gmail'. Can you clarify whether you are trying to log in via web browser, an email client (which one), some other app, etc. Nov 25 at 22:33

It sounds like you are clicking on the 'Create account' link, rather than simply entering your email address. The 'Create account' doesn't refer to creating an account on your PC but rather creating a brand new Gmail email account (address).
