friend receiving my incoming emails

by RickDance / April 8, 2018 12:11 PM PDT

I visit my lady friend at the weekends. Usually I take my laptop to read my incoming emails (gmail via Foxtrot).
But on odd occasions I have used her laptop.
She is now receiving copies of my incoming emails addressed to her on her laptop. At some future date this could be an embarrassment.
I've obviously done something wrong. What could I have done and how do I rectify it ?
Many thanks for your advice.

My bet? You used Chrome on their PC.

Many thanks for your thought.
I think she may well use Chrome. But she also has Mozilla on her laptop and I am unlikely to have used Chrome. And I think it also unlikely that I would not log out.
But thanks for the observation.

Mozilla now has a log in feature and sync.

So be sure to log out there too.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
