How To Change Country In The Google Play Store

 

If you want to change the country for your Google Play app store, here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Sign into your Google Wallet account to manage your payment methods (https://wallet.google.com/manage/paymentMethods).
  2. Delete all of your payment methods from Google Wallet, and only add a card to one with a billing address located inside your desired country.
  3. Open the Play Store and navigate to any item available for download.
  4. Click to begin a download until you reach the “Accept and buy” screen (no need to complete the purchase).
  5. Close the Play Store and clear data for the Google Play Store application (Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Clear Data) or clear your browser cache.
  6. Re-open the Play Store. You should now see the Play Store that matches your default payment instrument’s billing country.

If that doesn’t work for you, then you may also need to do the following:

  1. Go to wallet.google.com, Settings, and change your Home Address.
  2. Go to the Address book tab and remove your old address.
  3. Accept the new Terms and Conditions for your country.
  4. Go to the device settings and clear the data for the Google Play Store application (Settings > Apps > Google Play Store > Clear Data).

You can also contact the Google Play support team through the following link. Just click the Contact Us button in the upper right corner of the page.

How to Browse The Web In #Privacy Mode

Google Chrome

image

Google Chrome can be forced to run in “Incognito” – private browsing mode when you launch it, by adding a simple command line switch. In Windows, right click on the Chrome shortcut and select properties. In the target area, just add –incognito to the end of the string. For profiles, use:

C:Users<username>AppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplicationchrome.exe -incognito –user-data-dir=”..User Data<username>”

Mozilla Firefox

image

Firefox can be made to run in default private browsing mode, by adding the command line switch –private to the end of the target.

Internet Explorer

image

As with Firefox, add the command line switch -private to launch Internet Explorer in InPrivate mode.

Opera

image

Since Opera has per-tab private browsing (unlike the others), adding the        -newprivatetab switch will load both a blank, private tab and whatever your startup preference is set to (last tabs, speed dial, etc.) in standard browsing mode.
