How do we change the default person in Googleworks?   We each have separate gmail addresses.   One is rarely used, but the other is primary for my wife.  Somehow, the rarely used email has become the default, and we cannot get any information on changing it back to the primary.   In Google’s help area we see there have been over 5000 others with the same question, but no answers!

To correctly respond – I need to know more details. Are you referring to Gmail on the computer? ( or the Gmail app on a phone or tablet.

on the computer, you would need to sign out of one account and sign in with another account

on the phone, you can have several accounts available at the same time and you select the one you want.

Let me know your details.
