Gmail desktop notifications

There is a feature in Gmail to enable desktop notifications. Desktop notifications alert you of new chat and email messages that come in by a popup window in the lower right corner of your screen, as shown below.


Desktop notifications are enabled by default, but for me it wasn’t, so to enable it, go to your Gmail settings by clicking on the grey gear button near the top-right corner of your Gmail screen and click on “Settings”. On that “General” tab, scroll down until you see “Desktop Notifications” (as shown below) and click on the link that says, “Click here to enable desktop notifications for University of Hawaii Mail.”
