I have three accounts among the multiple accounts I have for Google's products. One of them belongs to a friend who accidentally made his account one of mine when he was using my PC.

How do I remove his account from my Google multiple accounts? Logging out from his account doesn't work. His account still displays under the user dropdown even though I can't log in to it.

Does your friend's account name appear in the username field in the login screen? If so, that's the browser caching his account name. –  JW8 Jul 10 '12 at 0:39

I have two accounts logged in as well. If I go to google.com, click 'Log out', it logs me out from all accounts. I have to login back with some account and the second is not visible in the menu that time.

So I assume logging out logs you out from all accounts and required you to login with each of them separately again. (Because of this I don't understand why you say logging out doesn't work.)

Hmm, yep, I logged out of everything and logged myself back in, and it worked. Thanks! –  David Faux Jul 16 '12 at 18:09

I have two accounts linked together as well. To remove it:

1: Go to google.com and log out. It doesn't matter from what account, it logs you out of all of them.

2: Refresh the page, and click login.

It will ask you to choose an account. From here, click 'remove' and then the X beside the account(s) that you want to remove.
