How to set a Google account as the default when you use multiple accounts

Google has endless tools that make our lives easier. As users, in our personal lives. And as users in our professional facet. One of the most interesting advantages of Google accounts has to do, precisely, with the fact of being able to use more than two accounts at the same time.

This is what we know as multiple login. This is very useful because it saves us from having to log in and disconnect the accounts several times a day. As many times as you have to use the accounts, either for work or to resolve personal matters.

To add an account, just access Gmail and click on the Add account option . You will have to enter your access data (username and password). When you have done it, all you have to do is click on the desired account each time you want to enter.

This function is very useful. But the truth is that sometimes it fails. In the sense that Google recognizes as primary an account that is actually secondary . To change this option and recover your real main account, follow the steps that we suggest below.

Make a Google account default

Google allows us to manage different accounts without having to log in and out all the time. If you have already taken this step, but are not interested in a specific account being the default, we recommend the following:

1. The first thing you have to do is log out of all accounts. To do this, within Gmail, click on your user icon and choose Close session.

2. Then log in again with the account you consider to be the default. Just click on the account. You will have to enter the access password.

3. When you have taken this step, you will only have to log in with the secondary account. To do this, click on the upper right icon that will activate the menu. And click on the second account. Hit Login and you're done.

In principle, if you have taken these steps correctly, the problem will have been solved. And you will see the account you really want as the default. If it happens to you again on any other occasion, it will be enough for you to take these steps again. As simple as that.
