When you have more than one Microsoft Account that you use regularly, you might recognize the scenario where your Visual Studio keeps you signed in to Visual Studio Online… with the wrong account. You keep getting messages that you don’t have access rights. Restarting Visual Studio, rebooting and even clearing all (Visual Studio) cookies doesn’t help. Here’s a quick fix:

  1. Open Visual Studio
  2. Open the Visual Studio web browser (under View, Other Windows, Web Browser)
  3. Go to Visual Studio Online
  4. Click sign out

You should be good to go now!

Hope this helps.
