Hi, and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you today.

Just to clarify, when you open up the Gmail website now, does it automatically take you to the new account?

May I connect with you remotely to troubleshoot the issue now?

Please reply back to me using the box below.

Please carry out the following steps to resolve the issue with Gmail now:

First, open up Gmail on a new window.

When the new account automatically opens up, click on the circled/round icon at the top-right corner of that page and then click "Sign out."

You will then be signed out of that account and taken back to the login page.

There, click on the small "Sign in with a different account" link at the bottom, and then click "Add account."

Next, sign in to your old Gmail account thereafter, and you should be good to go.
