  2. Switching User without logging off

    Hi,

    Thank you for the reply.


    • Were you able to try “Alt key + F4”?

    • Is the Switch User button active?

    Suggest you to close all open windows and restart the computer once to check if that helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
