Join Sally Norred for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessing Google Sheets with your account, part of Google Sheets Essential Training.
Let's take a few minutes to walk through the process of accessing Google Sheets using your Google account. It's important to understand that to access Google Sheets, you'll need a Google account, if you don't already have one. You'll also need to make sure you're using the latest version of the Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Chrome browser. You should make sure you're connected to the internet since Google Sheets is an online service. Also, you have to access Google Sheets using My Google account on a PC using the Chrome browser.
Start by typing this URL into your browser's address bar. Google.com/sheets. If you're not already logged into Google on your browser, you'll see a sign in page that reads, sign in to continue to sheets. If you have a Google account, type in your email address and password associated with your account here. If you've never set up a Google or Gmail account, you'll click create an account and follow the prompts to create one. I'll enter my password here, and click Sign In. As soon as you sign in, you'll see the Google Sheets home screen.
This is where you'll see all the Google Sheets spreadsheets you've created, or that have been shared with you. To open any of your existing spreadsheets, simply click on the name of the spreadsheet. To open a new spreadsheet, simply click the plus sign in the bottom right corner of your Google Sheets home screen. You can name your spreadsheet and return to your Google Sheets home screen, and you'll see that new spreadsheet right on top. You can also access Google Sheets directly through Google Drive. Visit drive.google.com in your browser bar or from the Sheet's home screen, click the icon on the left and select Drive.
You can create a new spreadsheet from here by clicking the red new button, and selecting Google Sheets. Accessing Google Sheets is as simple as visiting a URL. You can start working on your spreadsheet as soon as you're logged in.
