Hello everyone today I will be going to tell you about how to change default Gmail account while using multiple accounts. It is really obvious these days that people use more than one Gmail accounts for different purposes like banking use, professional work use, etc.

Opening multiple accounts through a sign-in feature of Gmail is helpful but maintaining so many accounts on one window can be a tedious task to perform to get information as there can be mixing up of information from one to another account.

So the default Gmail account is said to be the one which is the first account to be logged in and furthermore accounts are logged in through multiple sign-in features but they are not called a default one. Also, there are many Google products which are only accessible through default account and not available through other accounts from the window. Therefore to get all the products and to perform other important tasks from an account required we need to make it to the default one and then get a great access to stuff.

Follow the steps below to change the default Gmail account:

Suppose you need to access to a document folder that is not present in the default Gmail account but in the other logged in account. So below are the steps given on how to change default Gmail account as mentioned:
