    Log off all but current user


    Hi,
    I have a computer that my kids use for their schoolwork and need to find a way to enforce logging off all but the current user.
    I have "microsoft family" limiting the amount of time the kids can spend on the computer each day and when they run out of time it simply locks their local computer account instead of logging off. (Of course, telling them to log off before time runs out has had mixed results.)
    When the next kid logs in, the system is slow because one or more previous are already logged in.
    How can I set up this computer to log out all but the current user? I know this may mean that some user loses their work or context when their session is force-logged-out.
    I already have disable fast user switching set, as well as the new setting to prevent logging in the current user after restart.
    Is this a local policy thing, or a script I'll need to set to run?

    Thanks,
    Ari

    :)

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

  4. Log off all but current user

    Logging Off Current User

    I don't see the option of "logging off" the current user from the power button in Windows 10. My computer has different user accounts and I would like for any user to be able to log off at the end of their session without turning off the computer. Can
    this feature be added to the Power button?
