Azure AD Windows 10

Windows has traditionally had great support for using multiple isolated user profiles (“NT users”) on a PC. You could log off and login as a different user or use fast user switching to quickly move between profiles. This feature allowed users to switch between their work and personal accounts with ease. This will work in Windows 10 just as it did in Windows 8.

Many of us do at least some work on our personal devices – usually email or document editing. And switching between user profiles (“NT users”) to keep work and personal contexts completely separate isn’t very convenient if all you want to do is catch up on email while watching videos on Youtube. Windows 10 now fixes this problem with a new feature. Windows 10 now allows you to connect your device to both your personal and your enterprise clouds, within the same login session. With Windows 10, you can add your personal account to a corporate owned device (joined to a traditional Windows domain or joined to Azure AD), or add your work account to a personal device (to which you signed in with your personal Microsoft account).
