Sharing is caring!

How many clients do you have? Or how many projects do you have per client? Are you getting confused on your accounts and access? This may be something you need to organize your online work into a better and organized working environment.
 

When I started to work online, there comes a time that I had two clients one at a time. They have different google access, they have different website app need to open at the same time but they need to be open in different browsers.

Two clients plus other personal accounts and access, get me confused. Of course, I want to separate some of my files, links I visited and website apps I open when my browser startup. And most importantly, I want to bookmarks some important links for the client I work on without needing to bookmark them when I recover my desktop. I mean I need to recover them as well when I need to reformat my desktop.

That gives me the idea of organizing my folders, my files and the website apps that I open just using the Google Browser. Of course, they are not developed without a purpose, and I am glad I am able to discover them.

Here are the following items you will also discover upon watching the video, in case you need a detailed step by step, scroll down for the detailed steps.

  2. Connecting your Google Chrome Browser to your Google Account

  6. Setting Up Startup Pages
