A question about Gmail

Specs: several
I just tried to ask a question in the support forum for Gmail,
but when I clicked on the "Continue" button, nothing happened.
Rather than trying to figure out what went wrong there, I'll just
ask the question here.

My inbox and outbox show only the first name of each person
who sent email to me or to whom I sent email. If I send an email
to "Richard Appleby", the display shows the name as "Richard",
leaving me wondering if that is Richard Appleby, Richard Bear,
Richard Carson, Richard Dribble, or who. How can I change the
display to show the full name or the email address?

Huh. I don't know which forum to put this in.

"My inbox and outbox"
Web mail or email client Jeff?

Web. I had hoped that was clear without saying it,
but I only thought so because web mail is all I use.

My gmail web mail displays all info Jeff.
Googling gets this, see how you go, you may need to do more googling.

The names show in full in my web client. Hovering the cursor over the name produces a pop-up box with details of the sender, including the email address.

John,

I suspect that that page doesn't apply to me, since it says:

> Important: Name format settings apply only to messages sent with Gmail mobile or web apps.

and I'm using Windows Edge, not a "web app".

Also, I don't know what they are referring to by:

> Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

I'm pretty sure I don't have one of those.
