How to view a website as different users all at once

Follow

Problem: You want to view a website as a different person or view different information but you still see the same information despite refreshing or restarting your browser.

Resolution: Using InPrivate Browsing or Incognito mode allows you to view a website with different credentials or starting a process anew. No need to close browser windows. You can keep them up and compare!

Depending on which browser you use, the terminology changes. It is called "InPrivate Browsing" for Internet Explore, "Incognito" for Chrome, and "Private Browsing" for Firefox. Below are screenshots for each browser type showing you how to access these modes. 

Internet Explorer

To launch InPrivate Browing in Internet Explorer, click on Settings > Safety > InPrivate Browing. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+P.

Google Chrome

To launch Incognito Browsing in Chrome select Menu > New Incognito Window or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+N to launch a new incognito window.

Firefox

To start Private Browsing in Firefox go to the menu bar (at the top of the browser) > click on Tools > then Private Browsing Mode. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+P to turn Private Browsing Mode on or off.

All Three Browsers 

Alternatively, you can right-click the icon of any of the programs and select the corresponding option.
