My wife and I are traveling MSP to ORD, then ORD to YQB. We have to travel from Terminal 1 B7 to Terminal 2 F24, layover is 1hour 40min. I have two questions - first we would have to get our luggage prior to going thru security at terminal 2 I assume? and would that be enough time to get through security to our connecting flight?

You don't have to go through security. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are connected by a walkway inside security. You have plenty of time.
My daughter will be coming back from a travel abroad program on Nippon airlines. Her flight is scheduled to land at 7:30am. We have booked her on a domestic flight home to NYC on United for 10:30am.
Will this allow her enough time to get her checked bag, go through customs, recheck her bag and make it to the gate? In a perfect world the flight would come in and depart from terminal 1 but i am guessing it will arrive terminal 5 and depart terminal 1.
I'm just a little worried that customs and going through security will take longer than she has.
Yes, that should be plenty of time. She will absolutely arrive in Terminal 5 as it is the only Terminal with immigration and customs facilities.
I am travelling via United Airlines from PHX to ORD - Will that be enough time?
PHX to ORD - UA1419 ORD to BRU (International) - UA972
It is going to be close. You need to make sure your luggage is checked to go to Brussels and your checked in for your next flight. You have to go to terminal 5 via a train. It takes about 15-20mins. Than you have security to clear 15-20 mins. Then find your gate. Assuming everything goes smooth you will be good. However, Chicago has delays all the time. Hopefully they work in your favor.
Thank you for the information. My Luggage will be checked in till BRU and I will be checked in on both flights together at PHX
UA Customer Service Rep told me that it will mostly be same Terminal (mostly Terminal 1)
I am worried about Security check, Hopefully it works out well - Thank you Geiger
Geiger is completely wrong. Both flights will be in Terminal 1. You only have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security. You have enough time.
I’m a US citizen and will be landing in Chicago at 6:45pm and have a connecting flight at 8:20pm. I checked into my flight back, but wasn’t given a ticket for the US flight. Do i need to get my luggage? And check into my domestic flight? I have been through ORD many times. I don’t think I will have enough time. What’s the fastest way i can do all of this in a hour?
Yes, you have to claim your bags to take them through US Customs. What airlines are you flying? Where are you coming from and going to?
Flying from Helsinki, Finland to Chicago via finnair. Then Chicago to Kansas City via American.
There is absolutely no way you can do that in just an hour. You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the ATS to Terminal 3 and go through security.

Ohare was a mess, but I made it. Had to beg them to let me try when I went to recheck and I had 30mins left. Walked on the plane with a minute to spare.

My incoming fly was delayed, and I had exactly 1 hour. I know there was other people on the plane trying to do the same thing. I was the only 1 out of 6 to make it.
