    "Other User" disappears when user locks the computer.


    Hello,


    I have computers that are apart of a domain. Some of the computers on the domain are not displaying "Other User" when the auto lock enables or if the user locks the computer with WIN+L. Would someone be able to tell me what group policy it is that controls whether "Other User" is displayed or not?


    As it sits right now. Users are having to completely restart the computer if someone forgets to sign-out....


    Thanks

    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.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your query to Microsoft forum. I will certainly help you with this.

    I would suggest you to start the computer with hidden admin.



    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. This helps us in identifying whether the issue is due to some third party
    programs conflict. The word Safe mode appear in the concern of your monitor to identify which windows mode you are using.

    Step 1: Safe mode



    • Type settings in search and click on Settings.
    • Click Update and recovery, and then tap or
      click Recovery.
    • Under Advanced startup, tap or click Restart now.
    • Once your PC restarts, on the Choose an option screen, tap or click
      Troubleshoot.
    • If you don't see the Startup Settings option, tap or click advanced options.
    • Tap or click Startup Settings.
    • Tap or click Restart.
    • On the Startup Settings screen, choose the Safe Mode.
    • Sign in to your PC with a user account that has administrator rights.


    Step 2: Active hidden admin account

    • Press Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    • Type cmd in the run bar.
    • In Command Prompt type this command: net user administrator /active:yes
    • Press Enter and Restart the computer.
    Try to create new user account now.

    If you are able to do so deactivate the hidden admin account.

    For that follow the step :

    • Press Windows + R key on the keyboard.
    • Type cmd in the run bar.
    • In Command Prompt type this command: net user administrator /active:no
    • Press Enter and Restart the computer.

    Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to help you further.

    Removing a "hidden" user and user files

    Thanks for your patience. I was able with "Net User" to remove the left over user. It no longer appears when I invoke Net User.

    Now for the user's folder which remains behind. After performing the series of steps that you suggested, I attempted to delete this folder. The result again was an error message about permission

    "Administrators" appears on the list in the list of advanced security.
