This forum should allow me to chose my account.

I have about 5 different accounts I actively use depending on the admin type of role I'm working on at any point. When trying to connect or ask questions this forum goes to the Microsoft logon screen and instead of allowing me to choose the login to use, it picks a logon credential, does not pause (auto-click?), and thus forces me to connect under that login.
I now have many identities on these forums, not of my choosing. I know you have confirmed merging accounts is not possible, please don't skip the logon screen, so I can select which account to use!

Re: This forum should allow me to chose my account.

Hi @Blouwagie 

 

It sounds more like your settings are for single sign-on on your browser. Ideally I would suggest using Chrome/Firefox and then opening an incognito tab, this should allow you to choose what account to log in with for that session. IE will default to a single-sign on experience usign current-login and I think even in incog IE just defaults that way (dependent on how your environment is set up)

 

if you use a password manager such as dashlane or etc, and ahve it set to autologin, this can also present issues (may not be applicable in your case, just speaking from experience)

 

Cheers,

Re: This forum should allow me to chose my account.

Hi @Blouwagie ,

The problem you met is mainly because that you set the browser remember the password and set to login in automatically.

I suggest you delete the forum's password in the browser's password manage position.

Clean the browser's cache and try again.

This time remember not choose "login in automatically" selection.
