    Let's start by seeing how to create another Gmail account on the PC. The first step you need to take is to connect to the home page of Gmail or Google, then you have to click on tua photo located at the top right and press the button Add account located in the box that appears.

    On the page that opens, click the link Create an account located below and fill out the form that is proposed to you by typing your personal data: name, last name, then the username you want to use for the new Gmail address (which will be the beginning of the address), and the Password you want to use to access the account (to be repeated in the field Confirm password).



    At this point, click on your button NEXT and fill out the new form that is proposed to you by entering day, month e year of birth in the appropriate drop-down menus, indicating yours sex membership and choosing whether to provide a telephone number and / or a recovery email address to be used in case of loss of access credentials. Fill out the form, click on NEXT I will continue.

    Now, scroll down the page with the Google terms of service and choose whether to accept them immediately, by checking the two appropriate boxes and clicking on the button Create account, or whether to click on the item Other options and choose which data to provide to Google between Web and app activities, personalized ads, search history and YouTube, YouTube history, location history e voice and audio activity.



    Mission accomplished! With this last step you have created your secondary Gmail address and are ready to use it on all “big G” services.

    How to switch between Gmail accounts

    To switch from one profile to another on Gmail, all you have to do is click on tua photo at the top right and select your secondary address from the box that appears. The other inbox will open in a new browser tab, which means you can keep both of them open at the same time.

    If you want to set your new Gmail address as your primary account by making your current one secondary, log out by clicking on tua photo at the top right and pressing the button Logout. Then log in with the data of your new Gmail address, click on tua photo at the top right, press the button Add account and add your old account as a sub account.

    It is important to choose the order of the addresses as some Google services, such as Picasa, Blogger and partially even Drive do not support simultaneous access with multiple accounts and therefore authenticate the user using their first account directly (unless you take advantage of an incognito navigation window or special extensions to take advantage of the two profiles at the same time).

    If you need to import the address book or from the old to the new Gmail account, follow the directions in my tutorial on how to export contacts from Gmail.
