Default How to create a new Google account

Hope I am posting in the right area. My Ouya is rooted and I have Google play services installed and Google store. My Google account was recently hacked so I had to change my username and password. When I go to advanced settings>accounts>google I can not see a way to remove my old Google account or how to add a new one. When highlighting my Google account nothing shows for removing or adding. Could my 1080p resolution be hiding some button I can not see? I tried the deleting the Google store cache, data, force stop trick but when I open Google play and sign the tos it still opens with my old account. I'm struggling here. ;D

it's kind of stupid - you need to have a standard android "menu/settings" button, which on the ouya is only available as single-click on the ouya controller center button.

so, click into the google account, press the controller center black button once, and it will pull up the delete/change/etc. menu.

once you delete the account, a couple ways to add a new one is simply open up play store or gmail or google voice.

(Iately I find this more and more of an annoyance with certain apps that have no other way to pull up that function. there are ways to map that onto usb keyboard, which are not too difficult with the keylayout files, I think I really need to get around to setting that up)

@tarvoke, thank you. My wife is watching a movie right now but when she finishes i will give this a try. If you figure out out to map it to a keyboard please post it here.

OK this worked very well.
Before I open another thread maybe you can help me with something else. When I download from the Ouya store it will ask me if I want to d/l to internal or external storage but when d/l'ing from Google playstore Ouya does not offer that option. Do I have to move the data and obb files myself?
