  3. My gmail page does not look like the one in your tutorial. My page does not include the word, “Google” anywhere on the page. It 3 horizontal lines and the word “M gmail” just to the right in the upper left corner. When I click on the gmail, nothing happens. There is no dropdown menu. I’ve tried clicking on every icon on the page and none of them brings up contacts or a link to my contacts.
