Delegate Access to your Gmail Account to Others Without Sharing Password

Google has just introduced a new feature that allows users to grant other users limited access to their Gmail account, so that the delegated user can read, send, and delete messages on the owner’s behalf. This feature was originally available to Google Apps customers, which are usually business organization and people who have assistants who read and reply to emails on their behalf. This has been now rolled out to all Gmail users.

To grant access to another account, click the Settings link in the top right corner of Gmail. On the "Accounts" tab, you'll see a new section where you can "Grant access to your account." For example, below we've given [email protected] access to the [email protected] account.


The account you add will get a verification email with links to accept or deny access. Once the account accepts, a small down arrow will appear beside the email address at the top right corner of Gmail which can be used to toggle between accounts — in this case [email protected] and [email protected].


Each account will open in a different browser tab or window so you can view both accounts simultaneously, all while signed into your primary account. When you send a message from [email protected] while signed in as [email protected], it will appear as being sent by [email protected] on behalf of [email protected].

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
