Microsoft To-Do for Windows 10 now works with multiple accounts

Updated February 25, 2019: Microsoft is now rolling out this update to everyone with To-Do version 1.51 for Windows 10. The original story follow.

If you're constantly keeping up with work and personal tasks in Microsoft To-Do (opens in new tab), the app's latest update on Windows 10 will make separating them a little easier. Following the example of To-Do for Android, the Windows 10 app now supports signing in with multiple accounts, though it's only available for Windows Insiders at the moment (via Windows Blog Italia).

Switching between accounts works just as it does in the Android app. From the hamburger menu, you can see which account you're currently using, with your profile image and email address sitting at the top of the menu. Tap or click the drop-down menu, and you'll be able to switch to any other account that you've signed into.

Using multiple accounts won't be for everyone, but for anyone juggling personal and work tasks from the same account, this should be a welcome addition to help clean things up a bit.

It's unclear when we can expect multiple account support to make its way to To-Do for everyone, but it shouldn't be too far off given Microsoft's pace of iteration.

  • I'm seeing all those cool missing features quickly being added, but i'm still waiting for the folders from wunderlist...
  • Folders would be good. I'd like sorting according to multiple criteria, like in Outlook. But I have to say To-Do is highly stable and functional. I don't use anything else, don't need anything else.
  • It is getting better and better. I love Microsoft To-Do, and I use it on a daily basis.
  • Still only for Exchange Online accounts.
  • No it's not. I use it with a standard Microsoft account everyday.
  • Yeah, that's totally not true. I have a normal consumer Microsoft account (using my Gmail address) and an institutional account and both work with To-Do.
  • I wish it would work on the Surface GO. My TO DO app has been force-closing about 5 seconds after launching.
  • Doesn't sound right. I'd reinstall or reset the app. Hope you fix it soon.
  • Resetting did the trick. I did not know about reset. Thanks Andrew G1
  • I too like Microsoft To-Do. I have fully switched from Wunderlist to To-Do.
