Windows 7: Preselection of identifier (autofill of pseudo)to log in Gmail account

16 Jan 2017   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bits
Preselection of identifier (autofill of pseudo)to log in Gmail account


When I want to log in a Gmail account, I click on the Gmail word in the Google home page; it then appears a page in wich the last identifier I used in Gmail is autoselected and I am constrained to just give the password for this identifier.

I dislike this way Gmail acts. I do want to mark the identifier of my account and the password.

This way Gmail has to preselect the identifier appeared when I upgraded to Windows 10 at the end of july 2016. It was one of the reason I came back to the use of Windows 7 rapidly.

Since then, I was able to select the account I desired when I wanted to log in a Gmail account. So I believed that this behavior was linked to Windows 10 and absent in Windows 7.

But very recently I saw this hated behavior of Gmail to begin again.

How can I disable this way Gmail acts without my consent ? I don't want to click on the "To connect with another account".

Also, I'd like to understand how Gmail remembers the last identifier I last used even after having used CCleaner to suppress a lot of various data on my machine.
