It appears that it is impossible to log into TFS Online with a Microsoft ID different from one that you have already saved in IE (or Chrome, for that matter). No matter how many times I "log out," every time I return to TFS Online, I am told that I do not have access, and the incorrect Live ID appears logged in again. Even deleting ALL settings in IE10 fails to change this behaviour. This also hamstrings Visual Studio, as it appears to try to use the same credentials.

Hi HuwL1,

Actually deleting all cookies and shuting down the browser will enable you to sign in with a new LiveID. In some situations, specifically with WIndows8 you might even have to disable skydrive since this app keeps a logon identity.

Nevertheless, we are addressing the pain point in our next release.

Please accept our apologies for this incovenience
