Switch Plex Users?

Hi is it possible to switch between Plex User accounts in MrMC?
I don't have Plex Pass yet, but would like to know if it is possible before I buy it.
Perhaps through a keymap.

Yes, log out and log into the other plex account :)

We support one active account. Account sharing is something you would do under the Plex servers side. Done this way, then any shared accounts will show up in MrMC.

Thanks for the help. So if I create multiple users (1 for kids, 1 for adults) under my Plex Server I can afterwards switch between them in MrMC?

yes, look for Settings -> Services -> Plex client -> Plex home user

you can also create multiple MrMC profiles and link different plex user to different MrMC profiles, easier to switch around

It would be easier to switch around if the profile popup came up every time you opened MrMC, but right now it only comes up if MrMC is completely closed and then reopened. I'd more envision this working like the Plex app, where there's an option to always be one person, or always ask who you want to me. The same could be done with the profiles, and more family friendly.
