How do I change which of the accounts is the default one?
To change the default Google account when you are using the multiple sign-in, you need to Sign out of all accounts. Then log in to the Google account that you want to be the default first.
I have forgotten my password, but my browser remembers it
If your browser remembers your password (that is, the password field is automatically populated when you log in to your Google account, and you're able to log in), you should be able to retrieve your password through your browser's password manager.
See the instructions for your browser:
Make sure you go to google.com not google.ext (where ext is from your country).
From there log out from all listed accounts, 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.
It looks like this is a known issue, and Google is on top of it.
From the product forums:
We've gotten reports about some users being signed out of their accounts unexpectedly. We're investigating, but not to worry: there is no indication that this is connected to any phishing or account security threats.

Google found that security questions were not really secure at all as most of the answers can be found with a simple Google search. For example Sarah Palin had her Yahoo! account hacked because someone simply Googled her birthday, ZIP code and where she met her spouse.
Google has completely removed support for security questions and one only had the ...
Google's multiple sign-on capability helps you manage more than one of your accounts simultaneously. Signing-in to a different account when you're already signed-in, would link both your accounts (on the client side). And on each additional sign-in, each of the accounts are linked to one other. Signing-out from one account would implicitly mean that you sign-...

According to Google Support:
Removing trusted computers from your list
You can remove computers from your set of trusted computers at any
time. To do so, sign in to your account and go to your 2-step
verification settings page. Under the “Advanced” section, you’ll have
the choice to remove the computer you’re using at the time or all
This seems to be an undocumented feature, but you can use the authuser URL parameter.
So, you can create bookmarks that will take you directly to the calendar for a specific account, like so:

It is certainly possible - I have multiple. I have not found any mention of Google limiting the number of accounts you can create, in fact, Google's documentation mentions ways to sign in to multiple accounts at once.
But if you're doing this for "organizational purposes", there are probably better ways to achieve your goal. Using multiple accounts will ...
Follow these steps to remove other accounts from your computer:
Open a new tab and type in Google.
Sign out of your account in that tab.
Click the blue sign in button in the upper right corner.
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.
Alternatively, go to https://myaccount.google.com > Apps with account access > Manage Apps
You will be prompted for your password. After that, you're shown a list of all sites you've used Google to authenticate with, and applications that have access to your account.
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.
Click on the accounts drop down menu (top right).
Click the signed out account.
You'll see overlaid options to Remove or Sign In; click Remove.
If you mean you want to use your Google Account to login to sites using OpenID (like the Stack Exchange network) even if you don't have Google+ then you need to use the following URI:

'Trust this computer' option doesn’t work
For computers you trust, Google recommends you select the "Trust this computer" option when you are asked for a verification code. When you check this box, you won’t have to enter a code every time you sign in to your account from that computer.
Since this problem is 7 years old, for any people looking for the correct answer, please understand that there are some glaring problems with what the original poster has asked here:
As soon as I log in on Google it knows who I am
To create a new Gmail account, you should not be logging into Google. You can just go here and create a new Google account.
It's probably because you weren't invited individually to the file:
If you share your file with a link, you may not see the names of
people who view it.
People you didn’t invite individually will show as anonymous when they’re in the file.
People you invite individually will show by name when they’re in the file.
You can only see ...
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 ...
Google provides a language setting per Google-account.
Since this page will likely be in Greek for you, I'll quote it below:

No. The reason Google doesn’t do this is because it presents a significant security risk. In order to send you your password, Google would have to store it in plain text, which means any attacker who manages to gain access to even part of Google's database of passwords would have a field day.
Google stores your passwords with a strong one-way hash—they are ...
Authenticator works even when you don't have any sort of network available for your smartphone.
I don't know about your mobile provider, but I don't trust mine to deliver SMS messages in anything that resembles a timely manner.
Beyond that, it is more secure, as you've noted.
You really can't stop them from trying but you can make your account more secure. For GMail / Google account I would setup the 2 step authentication. The 2 step process links your smartphone to your account so when you log in and get through, google will also send you a pin to your smartphone from which you will then verify. Much more secure.
If you choose to sign out of any account while using multiple sign-in, you will be signed out of all your accounts. To resume using multiple sign-in, you will need sign in to one account and then use the Add Account option to sign in to your other account(s).
