When trying to set up a Gmail account, I keep getting an error message that says “server says invalid credentials”. I even changed the password in the gmail account, and same message. Any ideas?

Update - I figured this out - need to use the “application specific” password.

Great, I am glad you resolved it.

what do you mean by application specific password ?

Chrome allows for application specific passwords.  You can have a distinct password for email, or other apps in chrome.  It’s part of the 2 step login process as I remember.
