With the exponential growth of Microsoft Teams also came the problem to manage accounts in multiple tenants, if you belong to more than one organization you may find yourself signing in and signing out multiple times or using multiple browsers to keep up with everything being said in all environments. While the option to manage multiple accounts is not tackled by the official app there are few workarounds available to run multiple instances of Microsoft Teams in your machine, and with the new Microsoft Edge a new one has become available.

I personally give the name of the organization to the Profile so I can easily identify it. Install multiple instances of Microsoft Teams Now that you have your profiles created it is time to create the apps for the multiple instances of Microsoft Teams doing the following. Select the desired profile […]
