Gmail and Calendar Quickswitch with Bookmarks


This post show you how to quickly switch between Gmail and Calendar for multiple Google accounts using bookmarks. This method is faster than logging then visiting your gmail and then selecting the account you're interested in.

Gmail

You can easily switch between your Gmail accounts by changing this number in the URL:

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/2/#inbox

0 is the (default) which is the Gmail account your first logged into. 1 is the second account you logged into, and so on...

Calendar

This works for calendar as well.

For a weekly view:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/0/r/week

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/1/r/week

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/2/r/week

...or month:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/0/r/month

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/1/r/month

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/2/r/month

...or today:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/0/r/day

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/1/r/day

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/2/r/day

Steps to Create Gmail and Calendar Bookmarks

1. Login to each account you'd like to check, noting the order

4. Open the Bookmark manager by (A) clicking the circle with 3 vertical dots, (B) clicking Bookmarks and (C) clicking Bookmark manager.

5. Create a folder named gm&cal
