    How to Deny 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, the Guest account is denied to sign in locally to Windows 10.

    See also: Deny log on locally (Windows 10) | Microsoft Docs

    This tutorial will show you how to deny 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 deny users and groups to sign in locally.

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

    *Warning It is highly recommended to system restore to undo it. For example, if all accounts on the computer are denied to sign in by mistake.

    Hello Frank, and welcome to Ten Forums. Deny 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.

    "The Group Policy Client Service Failed the Sign in" for Windows 10 Local User

    I am the admin on our Windows 10 laptop. My son is a local user. I am able to logon as well as my daughter who is also setup as a local user. He receives the "The Group Policy Client Service Failed the sign-in. Access is denied" error upon logging in.

    All of the help articles are dated back 9 years at least and don't seem to address this issue.

    Microsoft is impossible to get a live person to talk to! Frustrating!!!
