Have you ever wished you could do this? If you like to use webmail, and by that I mean logging into your email from a web browser such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge then you may have noticed just how frustrating it is to start a new tab to log into a second email account only to find you are automatically taken to the inbox of the account you are already logged into. This problem gets worse when you are using something like a Microsoft surface or a Chromebook or a Windows 10 machine where you log into it with your account details and thus are automatically swept into your inbox as soon as you type the mail address into the address bar. The trick is to open what’s called an ‘incognito window’ or ‘private window’. See the pictures below as an example in Google Chrome.
In this first picture you will note the three horizontal lines on the top right, this is what to click on for Chrome’s main menu. From here you can click on ‘New incognito window’ and you will then get what you see below.
The beauty of this is that it gives you a clean browser window, much like having two Chrome browsers running at the same time. Now you can log into another webmail account provided by the same organisation be it Outlook, yahoo, GMX or gmail or any other. If you are using Firefox, Safari or any other browser then you will find the same option from the main menu, just find it and click on it.
TIP: The three lines, or three dots indicating a menu are widely used across many mobile platforms. It may seem obvious but I come across many folks who never knew it existed, in an instant they can do more.
