Connecting as other users to servers

There should be a more clear or evident way to connect as a different user after having saved a username and password for connecting to a server. Presently it seems nigh impossible to find where the feature may be hidden.

    If you are logged in as User #1, try logging out of User#1 & logging in as user #2.

    George, I suggest you use aliases for that:

    • Open a text editor
    • Type in (protocol)://(user):(pass)@(path)
    • Select the string above and drag it to a folder (it will create a webLoc file)
    • Drag this file to Places, Bookmarks Bar, Favorites or anywhere you like
