Dear PC Doctor:

I have two Google accounts. Mostly, I use them for different tasks and activities, but some days I want to use them both. It’s cumbersome to log out of one and into the other, back and forth. Is it possible to be logged into both at the same time? One technically “belongs” to a larger organization that I am part of, so I don’t want to link them or share everything between them.



Dear Multitasker:

I found these instructions at support.google.com:

To sign in to multiple accounts at once, first sign in to one account. On the top right, select your profile image or initial. From the menu, choose Add account. Follow the instructions to sign all your other accounts. When you are signed in to all of the accounts that you want to use, look to the top right. Click your profile image or initial. All of your Google accounts that you are signed in to should show in the menu. To switch accounts, select the account you'd like to use. You’ll be able to switch back and forth easily when you wish.

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy Computing!
PC Doctor
