using chrome on win8. logged in with gAccount-1 but when sign out then back in with gAccount-2 do not get second Bookmarks Bar, says "you already using on this computer" ? also some gMail contacts keep disappearing ? maybe i am misusing the sync somehow ?
Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will be assisting you
please explain a bit more about the issue when you say bookmarks bar 2 does not show up
hi Michelle, im just going out so maybe we can discuss later please ?
let me know what time you will be back
as question says, i login with gAccount-1 and get Bookmarks Bar-1 but then if i logout, and even "dissociate" that first account (so no sync occurs), then log back in with gAccount-2 which SHOULD bring in Bookmarks Bar-2 from the cloud, it fails to do either that or Merge, so i still have Bar-1
ok back in a couple of hours. thank you :)
post me once you are back
back now Michelle, here is another description of my problem, (1) one of my Accounts shows twice in settings, if i delete the excess profile, will it delete the Original as well (same name) ?(2) ive also got 2 different Accounts. if i log out of Acc-1 then back into Acc-2 it fails to sync the Bookmarks, leaving the ones from Acc-1. but my settings are "sync All" ? same result if i check "dissociate from gAccount" first. and i get message "account already used on this computer" - why does that matter, surely i should still be able to switch logins ?(3) thirdly what is difference between the Login showing in settings (say Acc-1), and the Account Picture login option which offers a seemingly contradictory Login to Acc-2 at same time.** thanks for any help. is this all explained by google somewhere ?
thanks for the detailed information
give me about 2-3 mins here while i check on the issues you have mentioned
the login to 2nd account and then click on start sync and stop sync beforesigning out
do this for both acoc**ts and then login back to first account and check if there is any difference
trying login acc-2 says "this already in use on this computer" - so what, why wont allow switch ?
you may check this link
i hope your signing in to your mail accountsin a similar way
ok ive read and printed. that is what ive already got, Multiple accounts in the Profile Picture.
but like i said, that seems to allow contradiction to the Login in "settings" ?
yes i understand what you are trying to say
if i understand this, everything works fine , its just taht when you switch between accounts, the sync does not happen and there fore things like bookmarks or progfile pic etc does not update as per teh account you ahve signed onto
is that corrcet
ok one moment please
when you sign into 2nd account you get message you are already signed in
at that point, Click on the Chrome user icon on the top corner, and in the drop down select the user associated with the Google Account you are trying to sign in to Chrome with.
let me know what happens
says "is already USED on this computer" not "logged in"
Click on the Chrome user icon on the top corner, and in the drop down select the user associated with the Google Account you are trying to sign in to Chrome with.
what happens when you try the above
** ive found half the answer. (1) i took gamble and deleted the duplicate account. did not destroy original.
next found that switching accounts via the top LEFT icons works. but using the top RIGHT profiles does NOT.
yes that is what i was trying to say
seems chrome problem not ironed out yet.
when i mentioend the top corner step above
other users got this "account in USE" message.
see its a known issue of syn not working
let me share the link with you
where is the "force sync" menu ?
further try the below
even after this the issue persists then as per the extensive search i have done on this issue, i have found it to be a known problem with chrome sync...chrome team is aware of this and working on it..i can share the problem thread link with you for your confirmation
my Settings / sign in does not have anything about Sync ??
here is the link: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/rLThjv3qf34%5B1-25-false%5D
where is the "force Sync" option ?
there is nothing like a force sync option
by force sync we mean to exit chrome and reopen to start a new automatic sync
i shared the steps above for it
i will list them again
you told me earlier to "stop sync" then "start sync" again, but i dont see any manual choice
when i said stop and start sync i meant the steps i just gave
ok we have a workround, while google sort out their junk !
as you were talking about sync issues in such details, i thought that maybe a start and stop sync would be selfexplanatory
my apologies for not sharing the steps initially
please trythem now
i am posting it again
ok. i think the EXIT is a good think to try.remains where some of the Mail contacts keep disappearing ?
first try this
let me know if it makes any difference
if i exit now, we will break off chat for a minute
ok no problems
you may reopen from just answerr email
click on view answer and this chat will reopen
back now trying second account, but still says "being used"
and if you try the top left corner option
top left works. ok so we have found a workround. remains the missing contacts
are contacts still missing after we did the exit chrome step
some contacts sometimes disappear from gMail list. that is a separate login to gMail
have ou checked it now
oh stupid gmail. the 2 that went missing this morning, have returned now.
i guess there are development problems
i agree on that
even i have a gmail account and it acts stupid at times
not your fault
ok Michelle thanks for psychological help :) its boring doing it all by myself !!
there are lots of threads where users have mentioned this of contacts disappearing and coming back
i know and agree
but i must appreciate the way you were with me at same pace in resolving this
yes. i think Chrome and gDrive have great future, in a few more updates ....
yes they have come a far way from where they started
would takecare of those bugs as well
let me know if you need any other assistance
if you watch android smart phone app at same time as writing a gDoc, you can see an edit uploading character by character, so can never loose a doc. that is quite something.
yes...just wait and watch..they have some great apps under progress
and many people can edit doc at same time. ok bye for now, and thanks again :) Alan, oxford uk
