    Please help. I think I need to delete a saved gmail password in the
    chrome browser.

    Is this found in the options or preferences? I couldn't find any
    options or preferences at all, no drop-down menus, or if I did there
    were only two or three and nothing to do with passwords.

    I was visiting my brother and he let me use his computer to send
    email, via Gmail, using the Chrome browser under Vista, and in the
    Gmail browser logon window, I entered his email address and his
    password, and accidentally, I seem to have permanently entered them,
    so that later, when clicking on the Gmail icon, it immediately logs
    into his email account without requiring anyone to input his userid or

    This is bad. Other people have access to his computer, and I've ruined
    his security. I tried to undo it, but couldn't figure it out in the
    time I had.

    I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Is there a Gmail or Chrome
    newsgroup? Thanks.

    Click on the spanner icon at the top right then select "clear browsing
    data" and you will find 'clear saved passwords there'

    Thanks a lot. I should have said that I need to explain this to my
    brother, who is 70 years old and not crazy about computers.

    I don't have Vista. I left it behind when my visit to my brother
    ended. Is it clear what the spanner icon is is? I don't know what
    spanner means.

    Left click or right click. (If I tell him to try both, I fear he'll
    give up.)

    Sorry I'm in UK I should have said wrench. It should be clear, there is
    a screenshot here:
    The icon is to the right of the address bar.

    Well, I didn't say where I was either. I looked in google images and
    eventually found it.
    This is even clearer. My brother and I should be able to do this
    over the phone. I can't call him till 5 and it's 4:40 here now.

    Thanks again
