I updated my Gmail password from another device and now Gmail won't synch on my Surface.


WPCentral Question

I have searched for an option of updating the password, but have found none. It seems to want to make me delete the account in order to fix it.

Could you join the site and reply in this thread?

HOW are you accessing this Gmail? In an App? Via Browser?

Can you not simply sign out of the Gmail and sign back in with the new password?

Try this: Control Panel > view by > Large Icons > Credential Manager > Web Credentials > Find the Gmail account on the list > click or tap the Down Arrow to get more detail > Remove

This will force a log in next use.
