First, let’s launch the Mail app that comes with Windows. In the search bar, type mail and hit enter… that will launch the Mail app. Or, if you have a little white envelope in your task bar, click that.
Select Accounts from the left sidebar.
Select Add Account on the right.
Select Google as the type of email account to setup.
Enter your full email address.
Enter your password.
You may be prompted to enter a new password. Sometimes when accounts are setup, they are configured to make the user change their password the first time they connect. Enter in a new password if prompted, otherwise skip this step.
You will be asked to confirm that Windows Mail can synch with your email, contacts, and calendars. Select Allow to continue.
You will be prompted to enter your name. This is what will be shown to recipients as from field when they see the email. Select Sign In.

That’s it! Select Done to finish and go back to your mail page.
