Once Switchuser has been enabled, Sessions can be switched back and forth between users without closing. Keystrokes for navigation:
- Ctrl-Alt-F7 for the original user
- Ctrl-Alt-F8 for the second user
The tool can be run conveniently by clicking on the users icon at the top of the Start menu; if not present, right-click the Menu icon ≻ Properties ≻ Behavior tab, check the Switch Users box and enter the command mx-switchuser.
