I have two Google accounts that I always sign into, one of them is my personal account and the other belongs to the company I work for.

I created a desktop shortcut for both of these apps from chrome like this:

like this

I only use these apps with my work account.

When I click on these shortcuts, they take me to the accounts belonging to my personal Google account and then I would have to switch accounts. Is it possible to make them take me directly to my work account?

For such task, you are supposed to use Manage People where you will add your work account and then you can even create desktop shortcuts leading directly where you need.


  • What is that? A chrome plugin? could you send a link?
