    Long story short, my mom got a Droid. They gave her a gmail account to go with it. Now, months later, she wants to access her gmail account from her computer, but she doesn't know the password.

    Can she change the gmail password from her droid?

    Thanks!

    Thank you, I know how to reset the password. However, when I try that, it goes to the account recovery screen instead of emailing her the password. The account recovery screen is not very helpful if you've never actually used gmail.

    So, please see my original question: is there a way to change your gmail password from your droid?

    You have to change/reset it from a PC or with the Browser on the Droid.
    Then the Gmail app will ask for the new password.

    Look, that's not the situation. I can currently read gmail from the droid.

    I can't log in from the PC because she doesn't know the password.

    I can't reset the password - it shunts me off to a form that asks for information like addresses she emails frequently and labels for folders, but she doesn't have any of that because she's NEVER USED GMAIL.

    So, how do I get her into her account?
