    When non-admin user logs out, the login screen is shifted off monitor


    I just set up a Windows 10 computer for my parents. I made an administrator account for me, and non-admin accounts for my mom and dad.

    I noticed that whenever my mom or dad uses the computer and then logs out, the subsequent login screen will be shifted partly off the monitor:

    This also happens if my mom or dad shuts down the computer - then on the next bootup, the login screen will look like the above. Also, if they are logged in and try to switch users, then the login screen will look like the above.

    The only way to fix this is by restarting Windows, then the next login screen will be displayed correctly. But then the problem will just happen again after my mom or dad logs out.

    The interesting thing is that this problem does not happen for me at all, and I am an administrator.

    :)

    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.

    Black screen after login - other user gets logged in background


    So I got these two issues, don't know if these are related. At least second must be a bug or other conflict between accounts etc.


    1. Black screen appears after admin login, lasts about 6 minutes before desktop appears. And note: black screen appears only for the admin login, other basic user account logins shows desktop in less than 10 seconds from login.
    2. When switching of or rebooting from any account logged in, windows complains that there is another user logged in. Whatever has happened, there hasn't be a physical typing login of any other user. I started to see and realize this because my other family accounts has tried to switch of this PC but didn't notice that note of other user logged in and left the PC in that state without clicking don't mind; I see this when I log in next day with admin login details and switching off this other user note appears. And this happens also verse vice, just like admin gets logged in in background without me getting really logged in.

    I got from Microsoft Finland community support advise that I should create a new admin account and then destroy current admin. But that would be a big mess because I have the whole MS family based on control from my current admin account. Also too many other services are depending of the control from this current admin account as Office 365 home accounts and security software.

    Application logs for non-admin user win10


    Hi all,
    I am using windows 10 machine and wanted to view application logs for non-admin user.
    But currently, when looking into event viewer as an admin user, I don't see any logs getting generated for non-admin user.
    Is there a way to do this (setting some registry or global policy)?

    Thanks.
