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.

Follow these steps to remove other accounts from your computer:

  1. Open a new tab and type in Google.
  2. Sign out of your account in that tab.
  3. Click the blue sign in button in the upper right corner.
  4. This will bring up all accounts on your computer and there will be an add account option on the bottom left or a delete account option on the bottom right.
  5. Click the delete option.
  6. Click on the accounts you wish to remove from your computer.
  7. Click done.
  8. Sign back into your Google account.
