I've looked at several forums like this one and this one but since Google changes their interface every couple days, they're all wrong.

Here's what my sign in page looks like today and I can't remove any of the accounts from the list:

First I go to gmail.com and get this:

Then I click Sign in with a different account and get this:

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

There should be "remove account" on the sign-in page next to "add account". Where is this screenshot from? A sign in page or an account page? – Raystafarian Apr 14 '14 at 13:11
@Raystafarian I updated the question to show how I got there – Okuma.Tony Apr 14 '14 at 13:20
What browser are you using? Do you have any extensions on it? It seems like what you should see is being removed or blocked. – Raystafarian Apr 14 '14 at 13:21
@Raystafarian Google Chrome, Windows 7 64b, no extensions – Okuma.Tony Apr 14 '14 at 13:22
I see the same as the OP. There was no Remove account button but it appeared when I logged out of one of the Google accounts that I was logged into. – Mr. Flibble Nov 17 '14 at 20:39

Make sure you go to google.com not google.ext (where ext is from your country).

From there log out, and on the login windows, choose log in with other account.

This should give you this:

If you don't see the above at this point even, clear your browsercache, temporary internet files and cookies. Then try again.

I'm in the US going to google.com. I logged in and out and remove was there. I'm highly perturbed that this worked. Makes no sense at all. – Okuma.Tony Apr 14 '14 at 13:27
My guess is that the view without "remove" is when an application requested for logging through your Google account. – lukstafi May 17 '14 at 23:42
From the "Remove" screen, be careful to click "Done" when you're finished. Clicking anywhere on the account (not just on the "X") removes that account, and you need to add the account again. – Roger Lipscombe May 3 '15 at 9:49
It's the logging out that is the trick. – Lennart Regebro Feb 3 at 21:17
Terrible UI design by Google... what a convoluted way to even get to this screen! – Noldorin Jun 28 at 0:55

You can make the Remove account button appear by logging out of one of the Google accounts that you are logged into.

If you want to disable the entire system, not just remove a particular account, go to this page


Scroll down until you see a button that says “Disable Account Chooser”. After you click it, Gmail won't remember the accounts that have logged in (except if your browser fills in fields, but that's another mechanism). Basically, you are back where you were before Google "improved" Gmail with this chooser thing.

To be fair, it's a useful feature for many cases, but terrible for shared computers.
