Toggle/Switch Between Accounts
Toggle/Switch Between Accounts the same way you can do with gmail accounts. I have more than one gmail, and google allows me to switch between the accounts very easily. I'd like to see the same feature implemented in hotmail.
I just wanted to say that not allowing multiple Hotmail and live accounts into a single account was the worst idea you guys have had. I do not like not being able to switch between my various accounts. Awful idea!

Perhaps this is already available?
I use another email address more so than this live.ca email account...wondering
if there is a button that is available for me to have that sits nicely in my task bar
for me to easily go to this email account ?

Allow easier switching between two accounts.
I would like to be able to toggle (switch) between my 2 Microsoft email accounts (MSN and Hotmail) as I used to be able. It is very inconvenient that I cannot link both accounts together and view all of my mail without purchasing a mail management program/app.
I want to sign in with a DIFFERENT ACCOUNT!!!! More than one person uses this computer, and it keeps automatically loading as already signed in under someone else in the household. Why would that be made so annoying and difficult???
Please Microsoft Team, let us have multiple accounts email! I want to use my other outlook mails without having to disconnect from my current one!

Instead of signing out of an email account and signing into another account there should be a switch account button or join accounts to easily transition between email accounts
Easier access to my other email addresses.
It would be SO NICE if I could link our Hotmail accounts like I used to be able to do..... it is a HUGE pain when trying to sign in from different location (at work, at the Army library computer, etc) and I am asked security questions AND I am living in Belgium right now (not the USA) AND I infrequently use one Hotmail, but when I want to check it .... BAM what a hassle!!! Why can't Hotmail accounts by me still be linked to each other AND when clicking back and forth, I would need to give password? A few years ago when we could switch back and forth, no password was asked for, so I get it... security issues, but WHAT IF we had to provide passwords? That would be oh, so lovely.............................

Change between hotmail accounts WITHOUT having to LOG OUT/LOG IN again!! With Live Mail I could see all of my hotmail accts and jump from one to the other to read/send email from those accounts.
Please advise how I'm able to do that running outlook from the Internet like I have to do now!! Changing between accts to read/send mail is taking so many extra steps...it's very inconvenient. And I'm a PAYING yearly SUBSCRIBER for Hotmail! I need some of the wonderful features back w/your forced changes to us!!
Thanks in advance for giving me a place to ask you about this!

a way you can make a new email and all the old email you had or have will come up so you can enter them all at the same time with out having to sign out. 4 ppl in a house all them can have tabs each of there emails or one person can have more then one tab for them self each one a different email.

I would like to suggest to make it possible to open two or three accounts at the same time and we can switch or toggle between them.
Previously, you were able to link 2 or more email accounts therefore switching from account to account was seamless without having to log out and back in which is time consuming. I cannot find this feature anymore and think that it should be re-instated.
may I suggest an option for a locked space ~ for where to place passwords ~ and should your email account be compromised there is a way of protecting and not being locked out or retrieving if hacked or at risk
If the main email is compromised in any way ~ does this mean that an alias address on same account will be at risk and compromised also. Just asking as I've had so much spam since compromised and trying to find an easy solution without losing all my email correspondence and contacts ~ would like to be able to transfer it all to a new Hotmail account with out loosing it all, as suspect an alias on this already compromised account would be compromised too, if merged. Despite changing passwords etc, daily spam getting me down.
Just one question that I wish clarified seeing as my email account is compromised after a company said their data including emails of clients have been hacked. If you a main email in Hotmail, yet other emails that are merged ~ does that mean that all your merged email accounts are at risk too. if so, I'm all for having to log in and out.
My only concern is that when a person has had their main email account hacked or compromised ~ then does this not pose a risk to the other email accounts if indeed they are linked ?

I have multiple accounts and signing out two or three times for each is annoying. Should work the first time. Are you aware of this issue.
Also being able to be in two accounts at once (same browser but different tabs) would be helpful!!!
I have several Outlook and Hotmail accounts.
Until this week, when I closed an account and went to another one, I just clicked on the X. And logged back on when I wanted to open one of my other accounts.
Now when I try to log-on to one of my other accounts, I'm still on the last account. I can't log off!
I can't find a way to log out of the Outlook/Hotmail account that I'm currently using. In the past, there was a symbol to Click On to log out. I have Clicked On all the symbols available but none of them allow me to log-out.
What to do?
