    Have gmail 2 accounts. My W7 set to remember sign in for my account and there is a blue "W" signifying my account. Other programs allow option to switch accounts but I cannot find this in my gmail account mail page or how I can login to the other account. Am I missing something or is there no option to do this? If I try to go to the gmail sign in page it logs on to my account and I cannot find a way to switch to or log in to the alternate account. How can I do this, simply or not? Other accounts have two account letters and I can click whichever one I wish to login or change to.

    I think what Bill means, is that other email clients, allow you to choose or switch to different accounts at login.
    I do not use Gmail, so I am unable to help.

    That s correct. I do not recall offhand WHICH programs but many programs my wife has a login and I have a login and once someone is looged in to one account that person has an option to login to the other account from the program without closing program, going to login page, and typing in the other login. If I run across one of the programs I will post it but the one I am concerned with right now is gmail.com. If I have to I will close program and login in as the other user but being lazy I would like to have the option without closing, opening and logging in again. Just hoped someone would be familiar with gmail and tell me it is not possible or if it is, how to do so.

    GMail through the web browser does not. The GMail app through Android does.

    If you're using a web browser, click on your photo/icon in the top right. From there you can add your second account and switch between accounts.

    That's exactly how I do it with personal gmail account and my business gmail account. The bonus is, it opens the other account in a new tab so I can easily switch between accounts.
