Allow multiple OneDrive accounts integrated into Windows Explorer
Currently, even if you integrated multiple OneDrive accounts, only the one in which you are logged on is integrated into Windows Explorer. Allowing to use as many OneDrive accounts you have integrated into Windows Explore would make OneDrive even more relevant.
Understand the request, but we have no plans to support multiple OneDrive personal accounts per OS user account.
I have just upgraded to a Windows 8.1 LapTop. I have my own OneDrive Account, however, there is another I use with a number of other people for shared voluntary work we undertake. How can I get onto the second account please?

That's a bummer... I have two onedrive accounts... a personal one and another one issued by my school, which i think is a great idea... however, it would've been even better if Windows 8.1 allowed for at least a personal and a business onedrive account to be integrated into one machine... coz it kinda sucks having to use the web browser or flash drives just to transfer files when there could be an easier way to do so.
My onedrive android app allows this functionality... I'm not really sure if it's possible in windows 8.1.
impossibiity to have multiple accounts is the reason why I am using google drive, drop box and some others, because so it is possible to have multiple drives on one desktop / device account.
I consider MS to be quite arrogant by not considering this option at all. Now that I know I think I will definitively abandon onedrive :-(

absurd! this is a basic need. amazed it can't be done. greatly diminishes the value of office 365 and onedrive.
Hi. Very simple answer to that. Microsoft wants you to buy extra storage instead of combining multiple accounts.
At least this hasn't been declined (yet?): http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6409926-allow-local-accounts-full-use-of-desktop-and-moder
Wow, I'm amazed by this being rejected completely as well. So Android, iOS and Windows Phone get it and Windows does not?!? Even if you don't support multiple accounts in parallel at least allow us to log-off and login with different account. Why do I have to use my 15GB free account on my business laptop just because I'm logged in there with an AD "offline" account, o Ad account connected to business Microsoft account. Haven't you ever noticed the concepts of bring-your-own devices, work at home, and so on? Should we always go fetch files through the web? Web that is accessed by IE that does not support folder uploads or sync? Bad decision, I hope this will get reopened.
+10 to request
+10 to what Maarten commented in August
Wow. What a quick negative response. This is poor customer service... I thought all of Sinofsky's hires were fired. Apparently there is at least one hold out.
This really needed under local accounts in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.

Why is this blocked? The idea about User Voice is to collect the wishes of a consumer/customer base. I understand that you have not -planned- to do this, but it could actually be an often requested feature that maybe plans need to be adjusted.
