I need help with signing out of a pc on the discoverable. Not mapped drives.

for example: 

PC1 is shown as a discoverable pc on the network for PC2, 

on PC2, when clicking on PC1, windows credentials are prompted, I signed in with user credentials "User1"

I now need to sign into PC1 with user credentials "User2".

The "User1" credentials connection stays persistent and I cant connect with a different acc.

Please help, I've been stuck on this for ages, no amount of researching has helped and I don't know who to ask.

Run...

net use * /d /y

... from a command prompt, then try again.

 

Windows is weird about allowing multiple connections with multiple credentials, for some reason.

This seems to have worked! I can finally test different user permissions from one PC!

Ive been stuck on this problem for about a week or more now. Any kind of googling just tells me how to unmount shared drives.

I wish this would be more well known as I think Its and easy issue to run into.
