- From Chrome, open a new Incognito Window
- In the Incognito Window go to
- Click on the Think Central icon and log in
Remove and re-add the account to the device:
- Sign out.
- On the Chromebook sign-in screen, select the profile you want to remove.
- Next to the profile name, select the Down arrow .
- Select Remove this user.
- In the box that appears, select Remove this user.

When you remove an account, it’s only removed from the Chromebook. The Google Account itself, including its data and settings, will still exist.
