Hello - (hope this is the correct board)

Got into trouble when trying to add another accoun-- I had wanted to add my sister's Gmail account, not another in my name. Now when I go to Gmail I have a new window (“Select an account”). When I click my name, I am then taken to the sign-in screen. If I hit “Edit,” the option is to “Select an account to remove” – I certainly don’t want to remove my account.
Can I delete this “Select an account” window and go directly to sign-in window?

Thank you.

@samich, Sorry, that's all I have to offer. Maybe others will have an answer for you. Don't have a Mac or Gmail account myself.

Can you please post a screenshot? Would make things easier. And are you running Mountain Lion?

Hi -

(I am running a PC, not a Mac.)

Here is a screenshot. After I click on the arrow, I am taken to the signin screen with my name and passord already entered.

Hope this helps - Thank you.

(Sorry if this did not come across: I am used to seeing "Attachment" Thanks for your patience

"Where's the screenshot? -- Clicking the link you posted opens up MY gmail"

Hello -

For what it's worth, when going to Gmail I am now taken directly to the sign-in screen.
