    I have tried to uninstall it to no avail!
    Tried to download & install IE but it is blocked!

    Do you mean Google Chrome perhaps? Gmail is a E-mail host, not a web browser.

    IE is always installed. You should be able to uninstall Google Chrome via Control Panel, Programs and Features.

    It is "Not as it should be", "It is the way it is!"

    I came here for help, not snide remarks!

    Should be a way of giving a NEGATIVE "Thumbs Up"

    That "OLD GRUMPY FART"

    Tully, that wasn't a snide remark.

    Gmail is a mail service not a browser so it must be installed onto a mail client or in a browser.

    You will need to need to explain a little more of the situation or provide some screens shots as what you have originally posted doesn't make sense.

    There's bunch of Gmail Apps in the store, maybe one of those ?

    Pardon me? I'm trying to help and your being plain rude. Good luck, I'm done.

    Yeah I didn't see the response as snide, I've read the original post a few times and don't understand what is being asked.

    @Tully - Please clarify your post.

    Your specs state you are running Win10.

    If you are running Win 8.1 on another computer, or on a partition of one computer, check this link.

    On my Win7, Win8.1, Win10, Mac OS X and Linux Mint computers Gmail is simply a Web page in my browsers. Internet Explorer should be in the Windows Control Panel, Programs and Features, and the Turn Windows features on or off section. Internet Explorer will have a checkmark if installed, no checkmark if it is missing or uninstalled. Put a checkmark on it if missing. I have unchecked IE, rebooted and put the checkmark back, got IE installed again. It's also quite possible an infection of some type has screwed things up, am just rebuilding a client's computer for that reason and a few more missing items.
