switch back shows as a link in the navigation block. if you don't have that block enabled, then you'll have to find an alternate place to put that menu item.

Same for us. We must not use the Navigation block either in our drupal 6 setup. We have the Admin menu module and wonder if it could appear there somehow? I have to logout as the user I masquerade as, and then log back in with my credentials.

direct link to switch back appears to be
I found it in the administration menu not in the navigation one, right after I reconnect to my admin account, since I have the same issue, and same constraints about menus than jefbak2

but recreating the link in a menu does not seem to work when trying to switch back from a normal user to my admin account. a token/key is needed I suppose ?

could someone share how to generate the key, or how to implement the switch back link into a theme through a function ?

EDIT : oh. just configure the masquerade block to appear for the user role you want to masquerade, and look at the readme :)

i was looking at possibly creating a php switchback block add on for masquerade but i dont quite know how masquerade works :(
