Here's a question I haven't seen yet. My colleague and I both need to have access to the same email address, as we periodically work in tandem. Is it possible that we both can monitor and respond and see each other's responses to the same email?

You're a life saver! I have been searching far and wide for a way to accomplish having two gmail accounts open on my Mac desktop at the same time. Not only have you provided a solution but you've given me options to choose from. I am extremely grateful, thanks so much. Also, your explanations are so well articulated and easy to follow, excellent work. Although I no longer use Safari on my Mac because of all the problems it was causing when attaching and downloading graphic files, I am sure this will work just as well with Chrome. You're the best and I am now a happy subscriber.

Here's another way to go if you want to combine multiple accounts (gmail, drive, calendar, hangouts) We created our own Desktop App for it out of necessity (for Windows and Mac) Easily access all your Google accounts from one simple interface! https://www.GetGamma.net/ We are currently in Beta but it looks very promising!

Do you know how to SEPARATE or DISCONNECT 2 different gmail accounts that are now connected? Since they are connected now, when I change 1 password, it changes the other. I do not want to delete either account, as my personal one has my google drive and calendar etc. and my work one has work people. Can't they have 2 different passwords?
Carolyn Hutchinson (2 years ago)
I watched this....more about browsers. my problem is that when I opened my BUSINESS gmail....it changed my personal email's password simultaneously. Kind of that 1 big email account you were talking about. Are your 3 gmail accounts listed under you...with your picture at the top right corner?

dottotech (2 years ago)
I am not sure what you want to do. Use separate mail apps to keep them separate if you are concerned

In internet Firefox says start in new window or tab  Internet explorer 11 doesn't have incognito it says Start In Private Browsing Window.   Great how to video.I like Chrome but one thing that's annoying is the automatic pop search.  After doing all tricks to turn it off it still shows up every time Chrome is open.  Bet other have experienced that too..

Help please. I have two accounts on the same gmail, my YouTube account and personal. How do I make the YouTube account the default account so when I open google it's at the top right. When I click the drop down it doesn't appear. When I try and log into it, it's the same gmail as my personal one so I can't sign into it.
JJAG3 (3 years ago)

Arius Pierre (3 years ago)
I need help, I have an account Arius Pierre and Arius Pierre 2. They both use the same email and every time i login it sets my g+ page as Arius Pierre 2 (which isn't even my main account) I went to check out the manager for my Arius Pierre page and it said the manager for it was Arius Pierre 2. when i put Arius Pierre or my primary email into the bar it continues to bring up Arius Pierre 2 as if theres is no way to put my main account as the manager... i'm at a loss

Thanks! I appreciate kind comments, and the share!

Two questions: 1) If I have created lets say 4 gmail accounts and I forgot 2 of them is there a central location to find all accounts I have created? 2) If I can find accounts under my name that I have forgotten I take it I can delete correct? Thanks, Shawn 
Shawn Love (4 years ago)
Thought so, thanks for confirming and responding.
dottotech (4 years ago)
+Shawn Love I am not sure, and there really aren't  many ways to ask Google anything. You might be able to recover information based on your phone number, you can on email address, but I am pretty sure name is not an option.
Shawn Love (4 years ago)
Since my first communication/post have found the extra emails address that I had created at google mail and yahoo. But was wondering though, that if I had forgotten the two newly created emails address; would there be a way to retrieve since registered under my name?  Like a central location for all my emails created for that particular domain. I know that I have created others that I don't remember. Password(s) not really concerned about since I need an email address first.  Sorry for any confusion and thanks for taking the time to respond.
dottotech (4 years ago)
+Shawn Love Have you forgotten the account names? or just the passwords, you can get Google to reset the passwords. Also check your Google + account, the lost accounts may be attached to your original email address,

I never realised that incognito tabs were separate session too. That's handy to know. Thanks =)

Very great!  Do you have an update to this for windows?  I like the fluidapp.com but as of today... they only support mac.  Better yet, is there a bookmarking service that does this?  I use one bookmarking service (love it!) but it doesn't pass the username/pass word along.  As a marketing firm... we manage 30-40 diff gmail accounts.
Benjamin Ruggieri (4 years ago)
is there a program like www.Fluidapp.com for window 
Taylor Lyman (4 years ago)
Benjamin... I'd you are using Chrome there is a create application shortcut feature built right in... I'm not positive it will support separate google logins but it is very nice. Look under tools in the menu.

Hey +dottotech have you, since making this video tried using creating multiple chrome users, each associated with a different Gmail account?
Craig Davison (5 years ago)
Steve, the only "issue" arrises from the fact that the feature is really designed as a way of allowing multiple users to use the same PC (under the same login), for example different family members. So you have to maintain independently the bookmarks and extensions/Chrome Apps across the different Chrome instances or users. However I would say you probably have the same challenge with bookmarks when using multiple browsers and chrome extensions, simply don't work with other browsers so this is a little better because at least once you find an extension you like you just install it for all users, negating the need to find an equivalent Firefox add on for example. *As for confusion; no, there is none.* When you create a new user, that user gets a completely separate instance of Chrome so each account is managed in it's own window. Each user has a different avatar which is displayed in the top right of the window on Mac, top left on Windows and Linux. In addition you can apply a theme to each users account, so the window for account 1 could by blue, account 2 red and account 4 Angry Birds and this is synced to your Google account. Because all your settings for each account is synced to the associated account it those settings, bookmarks, themes, extensions, apps and avatar will be replicated on every computer you use if you sign into those accounts in the same manner on each machine. And of course if you use chrome on your smart device you can sync your open tabs, bookmarks and history for each account (separately) there to. However there is no Avatar or theme on mobile so you do have to be mindful. However you probably use the Gmail app to manage your email on your smart devices so there probably isn't the need for it here so much. An avatar was visible in this video as a white silhouette of a persons head.

No I have not Craig, have you tried, are there issues? I can see how it might get confusing, I tend to use different browsers to keep my identities straight
Are they all perverts there at Google and get orgasms complicating simple things that worked perfectly for all users? Why are to waste our time searching for tips how to deal with these stupid "innovations"?
Craig Davison (5 years ago)
Have you got any recommendations for any service providers that offer a better or more elegant solution?
Pernell Hall (5 years ago)
I found there is a better (much easier) way of managing multiple Google accounts - youtube.com/watch?v=VMpJ9PvFVo4&t=39m0s

i really need help deleting my other google account
Cory Payne (6 years ago)
Why not just use the user feature in chrome for multiple accounts? Google promoted it as a way for families who share one computer to have a personalize browser experience for each family member. I find it works great for using my multiple Google accounts. You can pick a picture and name to identify each account. Switching between accounts is also easy. After setting up multiply user accounts, just click on the image at the top of the browser and select the account you would like to use.

As a webmaster, what would you do if you needed to keep up with 50 - 60 different email accounts? I use apple mail to check the email, but managing all these Google business accounts and squirrel mail accounts can get difficult to navigate through.
