Gmail makes things pretty easy for you when you want to send an email. You simply open a new message and type in someone's email address, and if you're lucky and have sent an email to the person before or they're in your Google contacts, then it should auto-populate.

Besides storing email addresses, your Gmail and Google contacts are also handy for storing personal information, like phone numbers, addresses, and birthdays.

Here's how to find your Gmail contacts in a few easy steps, using any internet browser on a Mac or PC.
