    Last night, a friend who currently lacks a computer, stopped by to print her resume on my printer. She logged into her Gmail account. Now, the default account for Gmail is hers and it automatically logs me in to it. I don't want her account to even show up on my PC. How can I get rid of it from my PC without doing any damage to her account, e-mail, etc. I thought she logged in as a guest, so it surprised me to see it this evening when I got home.

    First Name:
    Did she log into her account using a web browser? If so, go to Gmail and you should see a round icon with either a picture or a disc with a letter in it to the far right of the search box. Click on that icon and you should see a box with her account listed at the top. There should be a "Sign out" button you can click on to sign out of her account on that particular computer. You should then be prompted to choose to log in with a different account and you can choose yours.

    If you try to go back to her account, you should get a prompt to enter a password. If the password field shows a hidden password, you will need to go into your browser's settings and remove her log-in information from the browser's saved log-ins.
