Question about Google Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I created a picasa account yesterday with username ''V'' and it allowed it, but also made a username ''C'' based on my email address. So I deleted the entire account, hoping to start over. Now I both ''V'' and ''C'' are unavailable. Is there a way to undo? Do I wait for it to clear google's system or are those names gone forever?

    It was my first google account (that I know of). I entered my email (christyvermeer@hotmail.com) and created the Username VermeerFamily, set the passwords etc. It accepted it, but kept referrring to me as ChristyVermeer (upper right at screen), not the VermeerFamily username. I assume it got that from my email name--or was it from somewhere else? I'm creating the account for my extended family to share pictures and so didn't want it under my name. When I couldn't seem to change the options, I deleted the entire account. Hoping to start over. I even decided to just make one under my name (ChristyVermeer) until I could figure it all out. However, now it will no longer allow me to create the username VermeerFamily or ChristyVermeer. Are those options permanently gone?

    Thanks for providing the details.



    It seems that the Picasa account you created is permanently deleted and it cannot be recovered.



    Also, you can login to your Google Account page by clicking this link:



    https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageAc...



    If your Picasa acccount is still active, you will see it listed under My Products section on this page.



    Hope this solves your problem. Thanks

How can I make google accept my login instead of insisting on making me create a new account?


In an article titled, "Email already exists," at: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/69849?hl=en

Google Help advises:
If you see this message when you try to create or change your account username, it's possible that you've already created a Google Account with that username. It's also possible that someone else accidentally entered your email address when creating a Google Account, but was never able to verify email ownership.
To reclaim your Google Account, please follow these steps:
  1. Visit the password-assistance page.
  2. Enter your username (your full email address).
  3. Type the letters shown in the distorted picture into the appropriate field.
  4. Click Submit. You'll receive a message at the address registered as your Google Account username. Follow the instructions in this message to reset your password.
After you've regained access to this account, you can either delete the account, or change the username on the account to another valid email address. You'll then be able to change the email address on your other account to this email address.
=====
I hope this works for you!

How do I change my screen name


Change your username If you use Gmail with your Google Account, it's not currently possible to change your Gmail username after you've registered unless you want to delete Gmail from your account and use a different, non-Gmail address for your Google Account. You can also create another Google Account with a different Gmail username.
If you don't use Gmail with your Google Account, you can change your account username to another email address at any time. Your username is the full email address you used to create your account.
To change the email address on your account, just follow these steps:
  1. Visit the Google Accounts homepage.
  2. Sign in to your account.
  3. Click Edit in the Email section.
  4. Enter your new email address and your current password.
  5. Click Save email address.
Once you've saved the change, you should receive a verification message at the email address you just entered. To complete the change, you'll need to click the verification link in this message. You should also receive a message at your old email address confirming that we've registered the change to your account. If you don't receive the verification email, check your spam folders or request a new email.
Note:
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an existing Gmail address, but we invite you to add a new Gmail address to your Google Account.
  • You can't change the email address on your account to an email address that's already associated with a Google Account.
  • If you want to make your alternate email address the new primary address, you'll first need to delete your alternate email address from the account.
  • The account username that you choose needs to be an active, valid email address that you can access.

How do i find out if my gmail account i created yesterday is valid account


Go to a Google website (Google.com or Google.co.uk etc.) and click 'Account' in the top right hand corner of your screen. You will need to enter your username (usually your email address) and your password and if this logs you in then your account is valid and working as it should.

Your username is separate from your email address, and was set up when you created your account. If you know your personal URL (twitter.com/myname), then "myname" is your username. But, twitter's login page is smart enough to allow you to log in using EITHER your username or email address.

I went from gmail to yahoo, how do I change my samsung tablet to yahoo, I need help, thanks


Delete a Gmail Account
Log in to your Gmail account.
Click on the "Settings" button found near the top of any page of your Gmail account.

View the tabs in your settings and choose the "Accounts" tab. Click on this tab.

Look over the choices. Choose "Google Account Settings" which is fourth on the list of choices.

See a pop-up box.
The left-hand side will say "Personal Information" and the right-hand side will say "My Services." Next to "My Services," is an "Edit" button, and this is the button to click on now.


"Delete a Service" and "Close Account" are the two options on this page.
If you just want to delete Gmail, choose "Delete Gmail Service."
Answer the questions on the next page and delete your Gmail account.

Choose "Close Account" if you want to delete both Gmail and the rest of your Google account.
Both options will delete your Gmail account, but if you choose "Delete Gmail Service," this option will only delete your Gmail account.

Create A Yahoo Email Address
Yahoo offers free email accounts with add-ons such as a calendar, notepad and an automatic organizer.
Your Yahoo account is Web-based, so you can access your messages anywhere you have an Internet connection.
Once you complete the simple one-page registration form, you will also have access to all of Yahoo's features.
You can use your new email address to sign into Flickr, Yahoo Answers, Messenger and a variety of games and fantasy sports leagues.

Click the "Sign Up" link that appears below the "Sign In" option on the Yahoo homepage to create a new account.
Enter your name, gender, address and birth date on the appropriate lines.
Choose your Yahoo username.
Your username will also be your email address. Make sure "Yahoo.com" is selected from the drop-down list next to the email address.
Click the "Check" button to see if your desired email address is available.
Enter your desired password on both of the required lines.
The password must be typed exactly the same on both lines.
You will see a "Password Strength" bar indicating how difficult your password will be for a hacker to guess.
Select a "secret question" from the drop-down menu.
Yahoo will use this question to verify your identity if you lose your password.
Enter the answer to the question you chose from the menu.
Repeat this process to choose your second "secret question" and answer.
There is also an optional line where you can enter an alternate email address for Yahoo to send you password resetting instructions.
Enter the letters and numbers displayed in the image on the screen into the "image verification" line.
This proves that you are a human and not an automated script designed to open new Yahoo accounts.
Click the "Create My Account" button when you are finished completing all of the input boxes. You will then see your account details displayed on the screen.
You can print this page for your records, if needed.
Click "Continue" to proceed to your new email account.

How to delete an email address


Which email account? and adress yours or someone on you email list.
Email addresses: we have one for work, we have one for friends.
We have one for shopping, and sometimes we have one for the dubious Internet deals into which we get sucked.
Sometimes we get spammed so heavily we have to abandon one and get another.
Sometimes our main address isn't professional enough, so we create a new one.
Sometimes we just want to sign up with another service.
Next thing you know, you have more addresses than you can keep track of. It's time to start deleting the ones we don't need.

Access your Internet email provider in which you have the email account you wish to delete.
Type your username, password and then click on the "Sign In" button.
Locate your options button.
With Yahoo and Gmail accounts, it is usually located on the upper right hand side of the page. Click on the dropdown menu and find the "Mail Options" button and click on it.


Click on "Accounts," which should appear on your left top side; this depends on your email provider.
Make sure you do not confuse the "Account" button with the account information option.

Click on "Delete Account" and this should take care of getting rid of your email account.
Remove a Hotmail Email Address
A popular free email service offered by Microsoft is Hotmail. Setting up a Hotmail account is simple; so is closing one.
If your account has been hacked or your email box is inundated with spam, closing the account is an easy remedy.
Before closing your email address, alert friends, family members and associates of your plans. You may want to forward them a replacement email address, if you have one, to stay connected.

Go to the MSN homepage.
Click on the tab in the upper left corner labeled "Hotmail."
Log into your account by typing in your username, password and hitting the "Enter" key.

Click on the "Help" key located at the upper right of the page.
It will appear as a blue question mark.

Select "Table of Contents" from the sidebar on the left.
Click on "Setup a Windows Live Hotmail Account."
Scroll down to "Close Your Account."
It will be located at the bottom of the list.

Click on the link that says "Close Account."

Remove an Email Address From Outlook
Microsoft Outlook is a task manager application that is a part of the Microsoft Office software package.
The application allows users to send and receive emails, create tasks, take meeting notes and store calendar events.
Users can add multiple email accounts by creating different Outlook profiles.
The process is simple to remove an email address at any time and it can also be performed the same way for both the 2003 and 2007 versions of Outlook.

Minimize Microsoft Outlook if you have it open.
Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on the "Control Panel" option.
Click on the "User Accounts" option and then click on the "Mail" option.
The "Mail Setup" dialog box will then appear.


Click on the "Show Profiles" button.
The "Profiles" window will then appear and show all of the different email address you have set up with Outlook.

Click on the email address you want to remove.
Hold down the "CTRL" key on your keyboard and select multiple email address if you want to remove more than one.

Click on the "Remove" button.
Close out of the dialog box and the email address will be deleted from your Outlook account.

If the Apple email server was having a problem for a short period of time, this could have been the result, an error message about failing to be able to log you in. In which case waiting a short while and trying again, or trying from a different device (like a computer) to check would have been a good course of action ...
Usually if you have an email "address," meaning a username with an email provider, and you delete the entire account, they will not allow you to choose the same username again, it's gone forever.
If your email account is permanently deleted, can you set up a new one with a different, unique username?

Good luck!
