Can't distinguish multiple instances / accounts / profiles icons of the same app


(Camiele Wenniger) #1


See screenshot app instances 1+2 or 3+4
I can’t tell which is which, even when i hover over either there’s no way to tell if i’m in the right account. I actually need to open the app, wait for it to load and check which Google account is shown on the page before i know i’m in the correct instance.


Select your own mini icon for apps with multiple accounts

Totally agree to find a way to have a better idea of which do what.

SUMMARY (your need in one sentence)

I would love to be able to set my own icon for the small icon for each app.

GIVE US CONTEXT (tell us about the current experience)

I have 4 gmail accounts and not all of them have gmail for work icons, so I end up with 4 identical mail, calendar and docs icons. To better identify them I would love to be able to select my own mini-icon

PROVIDE DETAILS (tell us what you are looking to change)

I’d like …

DESCRIBE THE IMPACT (how would it change your experience)

Having to find the right icon each time, wastes time and makes station harder to use.
