Hi I have MetaMask installed and Im working with the Remix IDE. I've looked everywhere but can't seem to work out how to add multiple accounts to here:

so that I can test transactions using a different ether account. At the minute I have to go into MetaMax change the account and then refresh the Remix window to show the new account. If I click on the drop down only 1 account shows.


  • Do you really need a testnet to test your code or any environment? Commented Jan 9, 2018 at 11:55
  • This is a limitation of using Injected Web3 as your Environment.

Click on Environment input and select JavaScriptVM.

You will see the list of 5 accounts with a balance of 100 Ether each. enter image description here

  • You can also connect to a locally running node (like ganache) by choosing Web3 Provider as your Environment and entering the correct url (ie localhost:8545) while the node is running. If using ganache, this will give you access to all 10 accounts made available by ganache.
