    How to Allow or Prevent Users and Groups to Sign in Locally to Windows 10


    By default, you need to dismiss the sign in to Windows 10 with your account.

    By default, Users, Guests, Backup Operators, and Administrators are able to sign in locally to Windows 10.

    See also: Allow log on locally - security policy setting (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs

    This tutorial will show you how to allow or prevent specific users and groups from being able to sign in (log on) locally to a Windows 10 PC.

    *note You must be signed in as an administrator to allow or prevent users and groups to sign in locally.

    *Warning Only allowed users and groups will be able to sign in locally to Windows 10. The Deny log on locally policy will override this Allow log on locally policy.

    Hello Frank, and welcome to Ten Forums. Allow or Prevent Users and Groups to Sign in Locally to Windows 10 :)

    If you have the Windows 10 Home edition, then it will not have Local Users and Groups (lusrmgr.msc) included in it. It's only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions instead.

    If you like, you could use step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below list users in a group.

    Show Local users and Groups


    Hey Brink, I was just looking at groups in netplwiz today and I noticed that my user account is just in the Admin group now, it used to be in Users and Admin. I have home, so I can't change it. I don't know how it changed. I guess there's nothing I can do about it. Will it be a problem?
    I'm tempted to downgrade to my 8.1 pro and go to 10 pro.

    Sign-in method not allowed

    Hi,

    This issue may happen if you're signing in to a computer using non administrator ID.
    In order for us to efficiently you, we just have few questions for you:

    • Were there any changes made to your computer prior to the issue?
    • Is your computer connected to a domain?
    • Have you checked the Group Policy if the "Allow log on locally" was setup to allow users or domain users?
    Regards.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
