    How to remove guest account from provisioned PC

    Using "Set up School PCs"-app I don't get the alternative to set Guest account to not active. This means that our PCs provisioned with "Set up School PCs" gets a Guest (or Gjest in Norwegian) account. I am unable to remove/hide this account on the login
    screen. How can this be done?

    I've tried the following without success:

    • Net user Gjest /active:no (while Administrator)
    • Net user Guest /active:no (while Admin)
    • netplwiz and disabling the guest account
    • using gpedit.msc to disable account
    The guest account actually reads as "disabled" - but it still shows up when I go to login screen in Windows 10.

    I was thinking of using regedit to remove the account - however, I cant understand which string to delete and I am not even certain this will work. Which account should I remove?

    • (Standard)
    • Default
    • ProfilesDirectory
    • Programdata
    • Public
    Are there any other good ways to remove Guest (Gjest in Norwegian) account?
