If you try to log into multiple accounts on a particular website with two different identities, you may not be successful. This is because, Internet Explorer, by default, shares the same “session cookies” among all its tabs and windows. You can log into multiple accounts on a particular website like Facebook, Outlook.com, Gmail, Skype, etc., with two different accounts, using Internet Explorer in Windows by following this tutorial.

There is this IE option switch nomerge. Use the –nomerge switch to log into multiple accounts of a particular website with two different identities, using  Internet Explorer in Windows.

This starts a new browser window in a new, unique session. Do note that even after using the –nomerge switch, you still have to open a new IE window and not just a new tab.

To start Internet Explorer in this mode, type iexplore.exe –nomerge in the Start search box, and hit Enter.
