    Add or Remove Sign out Option in Windows 10

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Reinstalling Windows 10 to sell a PC - is the 'Remove everything' option enough?

    Restore factory settings do list Removes your personal files, apps and settings, and reinstalls the version of Windows that came on this PC.

    So if this isn't true well than just erase the drive and install a clean Windows 10 with all the drivers u need but why should it be true

    Using Sign in options in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please note that Windows will ask you for the sign in option using which you logged in last time. So please change the sign in options and it should work fine. Here are steps to change the sign in options:

    1. While sign-in/logging-in to your computer, click on Sign-in Options.


    Add or Remove Sign out Option in Windows 10 07d0862c-8647-43d0-bd03-26f5f7c48b5e?upload=true.png


    2. Then click on Pin or Password and enter the same.

    3. Now sign-off and you should be able to see the option that you used last time to sign-in.

    You can also consider removing and add Pin again to make sure it is set up properly.

    Hope it helps.
