Click on the Accounts tab, and on the bottom right hand side of the page there is a section "Tools". Under here you should see the "Merge Accounts" link where you can search for and merge multiple account records.

Click on 'Accounts' tab ---> Under Tools, there is link "Merge Accounts" to merge accounts.

Unfortunately, you have to change one of the names to match the similar name before merging so the account names appear when you click on 'Find Accounts' button .

Thanks
