If you are always getting your old account when you access www.gmail.com to access your Gmail account, it means that you have NOT logged out from that account yet.

There are two options for you.

First, you can SIGN OUT (log out) from that OLD Gmail account so that you will see the SIGN IN screen. The SIGN OUT button is shown when you click on your Avatar or profile icon of your Gmail. If you have a profile picture on your Gmail, click on it, then click on Sign Out. If you do not have a profile picture, it could be the first letter of your name that is showing there. This is located at the top right hand corner of the Gmail window.

After you click on SIGN OUT, that is the time that you will see the SIGN IN screen.

There sign in using your NEW Gmail account to access it.

I hope that helped.

Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!

If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Jess
