  1. Switch User accounts not showing up and switch user option not popping up


    My wife and I share a pc and before the recent update We both independently used our own logins and accounts to access my compute. After this newest windows update no matter what I try from making a random blank no Microsoft login account to erasing her from the pc and restarting any time I try to log in it will ONLY show my account and will NEVER show any other option to sign another account in to the pc even though in settings it SHOWS there is another account and that it has access. No her Microsoft account isn't locked.

    :)
