When signing in with Google (OAuth), it shows a list of accounts it already knows about. How can I remove some accounts from this list?

I know I can nuke all of them by deleting all cookies, but I'd prefer to remove one account that I don't want there, rather than all of them.

There used to be an ability to edit this list in the older version of this screen, but in 2018 redesign Google has removed [x] buttons next to the accounts.

I wasn't getting the remove button in the account chooser either, but it's actually easier now: sign out of the account you want to remove, then click on the accounts drop down menu (top right), then on the signed out account, and you'll see overlaid options to Remove or Sign In; click Remove.

In the picture below, I'd click on the "G" account to see the overlay menu.
