So, you log onto your PC and you open Google Chrome. You then try to access your Gmail account or YouTube and you notice that you’re in the wrong google account.

This isn’t the account you normally use to browse google chrome, but you don’t know how to change it.

How to Change Default Google Account

  1. Go onto Google Chrome in a non-private browser
  2. Click on the Google Account icon in the top right

Sign out of Googles account

  1. Next, click on Each account and Sign Out of all of them
  2. Click on Sign in at the top right of Google

Sign into Google account

  1. Sign into the default google account you want first
  2. You can sign into the rest if you want
  3. When you go to google chrome, this will be the default account

This is also the same steps you want to take if you want to change the default Gmail account in Chrome. When you sign into chrome after opening the browser, the google account you chose in the steps will appear as the default.

After you’ve logged into all of your accounts, you can still switch between any account you want, but the one you set as the default will appear when you restart the Chrome browser. This will allow you to sign into any of your Google accounts in any order that you want, then after closing the browser, the default account you set will appear first.

  2. Log out of all google accounts
  3. Log into your primary google account
  4. Whenever you open chrome, this should be the default
