Customer Question
A friend borrowed this...

A friend borrowed this laptop, used his email (expat427) and now my gmail account hs his email address. How do I get back my gmail account,***@******.***?

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Always on this laptop, usually google chrome.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I typed this question into google, but none of the sites, and there were many, addressed this question. I think my gmail address changed when I looked on a site about WWII and the site noted that could only comment if I used the Expat427 address. So I clicked on that, not knowing that it would change my own gmail address...

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?

No.....thank you....
