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 two Office Accounts, one for the business and one for the employees (all under the same comany). My employees login to the POS computer with their login. That computer also has the POS database. I would like the database to backup to the OneDrive account for the store.....not the employees.

Pity. Google does this easily.
Stupid for people working in 2 companies...
mine never changes. Always stays that same account even if i logout and into another account
Thanks tris. your link works for me, now I have both Personal and Business in one Win10 OS. I suppose Omar has left, that's why we have this feature now. Glad to have it.
Omar should be sacked
It is possible.
Here is the microsot site that explains how it works:
Although for some reason it doesn't work for me :(
But it should be possible
i have 1 business account and 1 privat account, how can i add both in my explorer? i can only see my business account.. both share the same mail adress..
Just to further explain why this feature would be relevant... the university that I am attending employs an educational office environment. I share class files there, but use my personal account for all else. It would be incredibly useful to be able to integrate these onedrive accounts in some way.

I can do it with Word, so Why can't I do it with file explorer?
...and that is why you suck.
Also there is no way to access personal and Business OneDrive accounts without re-logging in. the app supports both very well. why can't the browser?

We need this!!!!
This is a much needed functionality. Being able to sync both my person Onedrive and the one used for work on the same device at the same time is an absolute must.
This functionality is there. Go to your task manager down by the clock and click the arrow. Find the onedrive icon (the clouds) and right click it. Go to settings. The dialog box will have an "Add Account". Click it and add the additional onedrive account you wish to use. This will create a second OneDrive folder in your file explorer window.

How about you have personal and corporate accounts and multiple microsoft account you need to sync with your PC? this is more convinent if Microsoft can enrich this feature for multiple OneDrive account and make the lives of users more convinent. You know, microsoft has competitors...
I would also need this functionality. At home computer I would like to have access to a synced folder of both mine and my wife's account. That way I would be able to more easily handle offline backups for example. Even though both of us are using the computer we never change the actual user account.
On my work laptop I'd like to see both my business account received through the company and my personal files on my personal account.
I'm rather surprised to see it isn't possible.
@Omar - This topic should be opened. It would have a lot of votes. I have used several accounts to segregate functions for years -- family-plus; shopping; team; throwaway-registration -- and much material is organized comparably.
@Jen - If each member of your family has a separate account (system login) on the shared home PC, then each of you will(can) have their own separate personal OneDrive (so collectively you have 5 times the cloud storage) and their own email account (typically @outlook.com).
You can create a shared folder (via Windows between accounts, not OneDrive) on your PC that may or may not be synced via one of the OneDrive accounts. Note, if you sync, that account/person is "donating" part of their OneDrive storage to the family. You may want to set up two shared folders in Windows (say kids-family; adults-only) and sync each to a different account. That way two people are "donating" (and partially isolating one of the accounts). Another approach might be to create a 6th system account with its own OneDrive account and use that to sync a folder shared via Windows with all five of you.
Remember, you can have both a folder shared (via Windows) by 2 or 5 accounts that isn't synced and also a shared folder that is synced.
