Can i rename an installed PWA? 

 

Background: I have two outlook accounts (one personal, one for work), and i want to use Outlook PWA for both. Problem is, other than when installing a normal website as app, on a PWA i cannot change the name. So both accounts are now called "Outlook", and cannot distigush between both.

Hello, you can tell this To microsoft with feedback, menu, help and feedback, send feedback.

@Bautz 

You say two outlook accounts. Are these both Microsoft email accounts (e.g. @outlook, @hotmail, @msn.com)? If so, I'm in the same situation, but there's no confusion. 

 

I have one Edge profile for each account, called MSN and the other Outlook. A single instance of the Outlook.com PWA pinned to the taskbar is just called Outlook, but when I launch it, it uses whichever Microsoft Account I used last. I see my MSA profile picture in the title bar, and a click on it enables me to open the other Outlook.com account, using the second Edge profile:

The taskbar hovercards show the Name of the MSA, so it's as well to make them a bit different from each other:

I don't think I had to do anything special to get this arrangement, which works very well. However, I don't have an OWA account to test with, so I don't know whether this applies to a mixture of MSA and work accounts.

 

 

@Noel Burgess I have the same name for both. On the Taskbar it's not the biggest issue, but i usually start my apps by hitting windows + start ... and well, the difference is not really visible (the already launched one has the colored background)
