I can't find a "log out" option in-game—how can I switch accounts? Is there some feature to check that will make this easier for me to switch next time?

AFAIK the only way is to switch in the launcher. No ingame account switching possible. – Arperum Jun 23 '14 at 8:16
I misunderstood the "in the future" part. My apologies. – Arperum Jun 23 '14 at 9:00

Blizzard recently introduced the launcher. This means you cannot switch accounts in any of the blizzard games by simply clicking a "logout" button in-game.

You basically have to Leave the game completely and then you have to switch accounts in the Launcher.

You don't have to use the launcher to launch Blizzard games. Its possible to manually log into your account. – Ramhound Jun 23 '14 at 12:30

You can connect with an other account following these steps :

  • Go to the main menu (the one where you select your character)
  • Hit the escape key to show the menu
  • Click on "Disconnect" button

You will be back on the login screen, where you can connect with another account.

I don't have a "Disconnect" there, just "Exit Diablo" – Sean Jun 23 '14 at 8:21
That's strange, I had the button when playing on my friend's computer yesterday. I'll check if he was using the Battle.Net launcher or not. – astryad Jun 23 '14 at 8:39
Whilst in-game, you can force a disconnect and the game will kick you back to the log-in screen. Easy to do, but far from ideal. – Lyrical Jun 23 '14 at 11:12

You can disconnect from internet while in-game, you will get a message that you are disconnected and when you press the button to proceed you will be dropped to the login screen, where you can change your login.
