I have to jump on the pile here: how can you NOT use multiple accounts? If you set access rights, etc for you users but only use an account with heightened privileges you will not be able to tell whether things are properly configured for the standard user..
I frequently use multiple accounts with multiple web browsers: I often have IE 7, Chrome and Firefox all running at the same time with different logins. Since Chrome apprears to be the (noticeably) fastest browser for doing most things, it's the one I use the most (it doesn't work 100% of the time with various parts of Windchill, so I can't use it by itself). I use IE wth Pro/E.
I would like a logout button so I can use my browser of choice without having to shut it down and restart it.. Running 3 browsers along with all the other stuff I use can often exhaust virtual memory..
My 2 cents..

In Reply to Jess Holle:
It seems like something is wrong somewhere if an administrator has to
use multiple accounts.
The administrator should be able to just log in as themselves and do
what they have privileges for.
What would help as well is to see which user is logged in in which browser window. Now, I always have to go back to the Home page in the particular window to know how I'm.
I think I've seen guidelines passing by to configure this, but I've lost the link ...
Have a nice weekend, Hugo.

There is no need to close all the Tabs if you are using FireFox
to log out using Firefox you can use "Ctrl+Shift+Del" or "Tools | Clear Recent History" then refresh the page "F5" FireFox will prompt for user name and password, once you log in as a different user you have that users access permissions in all of the open "Tabbed Pages"

we find it would be a useful functionality. However, PTC seem relunctant to implement it. However here is our workaround
Use Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome etc.. at the same time to log as different users. Certain functionalities are not compatible with Firefox or Chrome but depending what you are doing this is OK. Also if you start IE several time (at least with IE 7) you can log in as with different users for each session. The problem is that you need to remember which window is for which user.
Anyone else with a different workaround ?
We have to toggle back and forth all the time as well and simply opening a second browser session (not a new tab) works wonderfully for us. (FYI - we are using IE7) We utilize this in our training sessions too.
