Open the browser using a different account

If you are testing web applications that have their security integrated with Active Directory, from time to time, you may need to open the site using a different account from your normal account.

This can be done easily by:

- clicking the START button

- clicking ALL PROGRAMS

- scrolling down in the list of programs until you locate the browser (IE, Chrome, FF, etc)

- keep the SHIFT key pressed

- right-click on the browser app


- enter the domain, username and password of the new account

- the browser will be opened under the new account

With this tip, it is possible to have the same site opened in different instances of the browser, each instance using a different account.
