    Non Admin acct questions


    I think you may just be looking in the wrong place. When you sign out the sign in screen and password box will be for the account that has just signed out. It's the same for a restart, the sign in screen will be for the last user that had signed in.

    Sign out, then look for a list of names in the lower left corner of the sign in screen. All available accounts should be listed there, click on the one you want to change the sign in screen to be for that user. See the screenshot at step 2 in this tutorial.

    Sign in to Windows 10

    Correct, the user folder is not created until the first sign in.

    My mispelledmail acct

    one of my e mail addresses is misspelled, but is one of those accts that pops up when I go to log in to an e mail acct. How do I remove this misspelled acct from this list of accts that pop up as suggestions when I begin typing in the email acct I want.

    and change the spelling

    Non Admin acct questions


    Setting up new machine. I first created an Admin acct on my wife's new machine when it started the OOBE questions etc.
    I got that acct all setup and then updated (long time downloads) and installed a few apps. Everything working fine there.

    Ok now I've set up a Non Admin user acct for general use to surf web etc. Everything ok except this,

    When I right click on the windows flag (lower left screen) instead of seeing what I see in the main admin acct (like System, Network, Cmd Console etc) I only see the new Start Menu.

    In fact I see the Start Menu whether I left or right click, both the same.

    And what is worse when I right click on an item in the Apps List, I don't get the usual Unpin from Start etc. Instead the app starts. Everything operates the same with a left or right click ???

    Also I can't sign out of this acct and then log in to the Admin acct (like I can from the Admin). Rather I have to restart.

    This doesn't make any sense. I realize it's a non admin privilege acct but it's acting crippled for normal functions.

    Can anyone give me any pointers as to what's going on?
