This extension relies on "Connected to Windows" accounts and only works on Windows 10 and Windows 11.

This extension will skip that screen by using your Edge profile account by default.

The recommended way to use this is to use a separate profile in Edge for each AAD account you have and install this extension in each profile. Then go to the site you want in the profile you want and you won't be prompted to login.

If you want to choose a different account, you can disable the functionality by clicking on the toolbar icon.
Risk impact

Use My Current Account requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Use My Current Account has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Absolute lifesaver if you administer Azure or Microsoft 365 and you constantly get signed in to the account that is connected to Windows, rather than your admin account (you are using a separate, cloud-authored admin account, right?), or if you work across multiple Azure AD tenants. Should be native functionality in Edge, but here we are. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

So useful when you get stuck in the account sign-in dance on a Microsoft site

This is exactly the add-on I've been looking for! I Ctrl+Click a lot of links to open new Tabs. I **hate** it when they all stop at the credential dialog screen. I don't know why Edge doesn't continue automatically, but I'm glad to know that someone has written an extension to fix it.
