I just bought my wife a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. She registered it in her name, of course, but we both want to use it. I have a Google account, a GMail address and account, and I want to be able to access those accounts on the new tablet. We have downloaded the User Manual of 160+ PDF pages, but I do not find anything that tells how to set up a "Guest" like in Windows 7, and no other instructions about more than one user of the same machine. I can't seem to find how to access my GMail on the new machine, either.
Please help.
PS: If I'm not asking the right question, or not asking it correctly, please let me know.
Thanks

open Gmail (on Tab), menu, Accounts, add account
when you have the two accounts on there,
next time you open Gmail, top right will show current user account,
tap that for a list of the accounts & tap the account you want to use

or open Gmail, Menu, Accounts, tap the account you want to access

In addition to Barts great advice..... if you want two different users for Facebook saved, all you have to do is each sign in under two different browser shortcuts.
