You need to be logged into the account you are purchasing storage for; http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=1047457 The extra storage is only available to you.

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.

I found it: When you visit you Google Account Settings, you can select Security in the sidebar menu. It will list 2-factor authentication. Click the edit button next to it. This will lead you to this page: https://accounts.google.com/b/0/SmsAuthConfig At the bottom of the page there would be a section about Trusted Computers. It will say that the ...

Google Docs have been merged into Google Drive. Consider Drive as an overlay that just maps your previously existing Docs collection to your local hard drive. Since neither Word nor other applications have a way to edit Google Docs documents on the fly (plus the fact that there's no API for this), the only way to represent those documents on your local ...

As @Dez has pointed out, it is due to the Autofill/AutoComplete feature that browsers (not just Chrome; although it may not be activated by default) implement to make filling forms easy.

I don't think that you can do that. I would suggest loggin with your other GMail account that you want to make it primary and then add the old one as an additional email address to connect them. You could also forward all your email from one to another or simply retrieve them via POP, if it is only for your emails.

I can think of a couple reasons this may happen The company you are at is routing through a common gateway, which was located at your old office, so your public IP address looks like your old location Cookies (ruled out) or localStorage set on the browser. Clearing cookies may not clear localStorage. Try using a different browser (one you have not accessed ...

It looks like under an older Google Profiles system (such as Buzz) it was possible to have a pretty URL like you've found above. Google axed it as a default however, in part because it effectively exposed users' username / email addresses. The best article I could find on the topic was this blog post, which mentions: if you had selected a vanity URL for ...

According to the official Google blog, g.co sends you only to webpages that are owned by Google, and only Google can create g.co shortcuts. When you open g.co web page, it says: You’ve arrived at this page because you typed or linked to “g.co”, Google’s official URL shortcut just for Google websites. Whenever you see a short “g.co” link, you can ...

That feature/category is gone for a while. Now your contacts are grouped into My contacts and Other contacts plus all the groups you have created. All Contacts used to contain your contacts plus other contacts, which are contacts that you emailed but you didn't add to your contact list.

Google is just the OpenID provider. Jeff Atwood explains OpenID rather well in this blog post: OpenID: Does The World Really Need Yet Another Username and Password?

When you log into a Google site like GMail, Google also logs you into all your various accounts Google accounts - such as YouTube. In order to be logged into a site, Google sets a cookie in your browser. This is fine for most of their properties which are on the *.google.com domain (mail.google.com, docs.google.com, etc). However a website can only set and ...

The built in Share functionality is meant to just show a thumbnail, but there is a workaround for a purely Gmail solution. In the compose window you should be able to attach an image. IN the "Add an Image" window click on "Web address (URL)" Then, in your G+ window, right-click on the image you want to share and select "Copy image URL" You can now paste ...

Go to the data liberation page (your name in the upper right -> Account settings -> Data Liberation). There you have the ability to export all data (you can even choose what data to get).

I think this might change when Google Profiles and Google+ are fully integrated. As for now, the best option I've seen is using gplus.to, where you can manually choose your link in the form http://gplus.to/yourname. It works quite well, but it should be noted that they are NOT connected to Google in any way. This is some sort of inofficial workaround for ...

I don't think G+ (or any other) will delete your content. I think there is a best practice somewhere that says "do not delete anything" (at least this is how I learned database design), it's just like in nature "nothing is lost, everithing is recycled". :) They rely on content—think of Google search—sometimes it seems that it knows what you want to search, ...

Now that Google seems to be leaning towards "Google Photos" or whatever they're going to call it, you can download your Picasa Web videos. Here's how: Go to the Google+ version of your site ( http://www.google.com/+ ). On the left hand side, click on the "Photos" icon. Find and click on the album with the video you want to download. Find and click on the ...

Gmail has now been integrated (and has been for some time) into the Google Feedback tool. To get to this tool, go into your Gmail inbox, and click on the Gear (Settings). Select "Send Feedback" and the Feedback tool will allow you to describe your problem and highlight/censor certain parts of a screenshot.

The Rearrange Google Apps Menu Bar userscript should work pretty well for you. It looks fairly simple to add or move items around as you wish. All the script does is remove the current list items and replace them with new ones. So to add Google Docs to the list of links you would add in: newOrderedList.innerHTML += '<li class=gbt><a target="...

Originally, Google Talk (and the Gmail and Orkut integration) was an entirely separate product from Google Voice. Next, Google Voice was integrated into the Gmail Google Talk implementation and then, recently, into Google Hangouts (Google+) as well. Google Talk itself, as a standalone product, has been more or less killed. Google's goal right now is ...

I think there are a few things going on here. By setting up secondary emails so that you can send "from" them, I don't believe you will be able to really break the link that others are seeing between those email addresses and the primary one that is associated with your Google+ account. You are essentially merging aspects of these various email addresses so ...

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Classic Home link, in the bottom-left corner. When you click on iGoogle, it sets a cookie so it can automatically redirect you to the iGoogle page. You can get rid of it by removing the cookies as well.

Yes, you can create a Google account with your Yahoo email address—or any other email address, for that matter—if you follow this link: https://accounts.google.com/NewAccount. Just to make things clearer because your question mixes some issues that might lead to confusion: If you want to sign up for Google Plus with a Yahoo email address and you already ...

Once a file is uploaded can others in my organization see the files and download them as they need to? You will have to setup sharing options; also unless its set to Public I think others will need to have Google accounts to manage the access rights. Can I upload and download any file type with Google Drive? Not 'any' type, but it covers a lot of the ...

As Al mentioned, it's just a gimmick plus some JavaScript trickery that shows the 'real-time' increase - in practice, the amount is a fixed space which gets increased at regular intervals. This Stack Overflow answer explains how the JS bit works This is the code in charge of it. Looks like it is based on a time computation being mapped to a number of ...

The reason for this is that, for a number of security reasons, browsers have limited capability to interact with the operating system's clipboard. If you think about it, this makes sense as the content within a browser window/tab runs as an isolated sandboxed environment to prevent possible malicious interaction with the OS. As such, alternatives have to ...
