Do you have multiple Google accounts and find yourself constantly logging in and out to access different services? It can be frustrating to navigate between your personal and work accounts, especially if one is set as the default. But fear not! Changing your default Google account is a simple process that can save you time and headaches. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to change your default Google account on both desktop and Android devices. So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get started!
What is a default account?
A default account is the account that Google automatically logs you into when you access any of its services. For instance, if you check your Gmail while logged in to multiple accounts, it will open with the email address that’s set as your default. The same goes for other services like Google Drive and Calendar.
If you have more than one Google account, setting a default account can be helpful since it saves time by eliminating the need to sign in every time manually. However, if you use different accounts for work and personal tasks or share devices with others who have their own accounts, it can cause confusion.
It’s important to know how to change your default Google account so that you don’t accidentally send emails from the wrong address or save files to the wrong Drive folder. Fortunately, changing your default account is a straightforward process on both desktop and Android devices.
How to change the default Google account (desktop)
Changing your default Google account is a simple process that can be done in just a few clicks. First, make sure you are signed in to the Google account you want to set as your default. Then, follow these steps:
1. Click on your profile picture or initial in the top right corner of any Google page.
2. Select “Manage accounts” from the dropdown menu.
3. Click on “Sign out of all accounts” at the bottom of the list.
4. Sign back in to the desired default account.
If this method doesn’t work for you, there is another way to change your default Google account:
1. Open up an incognito window in Google Chrome.
2. Sign into your desired default account within the incognito window.
3. Close all other open tabs and windows.
4. Restart Chrome and sign back into all other accounts.
By following either one of these methods, you should now have successfully changed your default Google account on desktop!
