Asking for a friend...

Scenario: she was using 2 separate EN accounts, personal and business. The business no longer exists, so she wants to switch to using only the personal account. EN was installed on the computer using the business account. I had her do an export of all notes (there were only 48 notes) to an .enex file.

I'm not sure how to switch to the personal database on the same computer. I'm sure once that occurs, she can import the .enex file and be done.

So, how do you switch from one account to another (permanently) on a Windows machine?

If you sign out from your account in the Windows client (Tools / Sign Out), you would then be prompted to sign in. Sign in with the other account.

Hello

Is there any way to switch quickly between account? I mean, one of my M8 want to see/share his employé note's sometime but it's a waste a tie to log in / out several time the day. So they have to show each other smartphone to share note. (and no, they can't work together on the same account, cauz my m8 don't want to share his non-professional notes). So a quick account switcher or, maybe better, the possibility to be logged on several account simultaneously will be good.

There is no way that I know of in tehe Windows client; you can always log in separately to one of the accounts with the web client, though.

You can start Evernote Windows client with /DebugMenu command line switch and use items at the bottpm of the [Debug] menu to quickly switch between accounts.
