Activating an account

If you have several accounts (see Adding or signing into an account), you can switch from one to the other.

Each account has its own access and characteristics. For example, your Office 365 sign-in enables you to access the data you have saved to SharePoint, whilst your Windows sign-in enables you to access your social network sites such as Facebook, Flickr etc.

Click the File tab, then the Account option.

Click the Switch Account link in the centre pane.

You can also click the name of the current account at the top right of the Word screen, then choose the Switch account option:


The Accounts window will show you which of your accounts is active (Current Account) and give a list of the other connected account(s) (Other Accounts).


Click the account you wish to activate.
