Desktop shortcut for Google Calendar opens wrong calendar account. 0 Recommended Answers 3 Replies 19 Upvotes

Hello,

I've been using the Google Chrome option to create Windows desktop shortcuts to websites for a few months now. It's been working fine until recently and I currently have the following issue: 

TL;DR The desktop shortcut for Google Calendar opens the wrong calendar account.

>I an logged into multiple google accounts and have been using this setup for a very long time. 
>I bookmarked the Google Calendar link that opens the calendar for a specific google account
>I opened the Google Calendar bookmark for that specific account and  created a desktop shortcut from the Chrome options >More Tools >Create Shortcut (Open as Window)

It always worked in the past, by opening the exact calendar account  that i set it to. Now, it opens the first account in the list of the logged in accounts. Is this a known issue?


Thanks.

The Desktop shortcut can have infmrmation about calendar display and start date, but not regarding which account. This is stored within the browser and it will log you in to which ever session cookie was stored as the last one.

I don't think this is the case or the approach to reading cookies has changed somehow. 
I'm currently logged into 4 google accounts on the browser and I logged into these accounts in a particular order, exactly to achieve this desired outcome.

I logged into Acct 1 through Acct 4 and created a desktop shortcut for Acct 2, while the browser was opened to Google Calendar viewing Acct 2  (this is also reflected in the URL as </calendar/b/1/> or similar url, which changes with every account) 

This approach worked, up until the last browser update or so.

I can confirm that this worked until recently as well. I use my personal account to browse in chrome and have a desktop shortcut for my work calendar. I am no longer able to do this.
