    Win 10 restart or shutdown doesn't log off


    On my computer with Windows 10 OS, I sometimes saw strange messages saying that there is other user logged in when trying to shutdown or restart the computer. It turned out that Windows 10 preserves running programs in your account and does NOT log you off when you shutdown or restart your computer. So, when the computer comes back on and you log into your account, you see the same programs that were running when you initiated restart or shutdown last time. Is there any setting in Windows 10 that forces log off when shutting down or restarting the computer?

    Thanks

    :)

  2. Log off in Windows 10

    Clicking on the power selection in the Start menu in Windows 10 does not give me a Log off option, only Sleep, Shutdown, or Restart. There are two users for my PC and in earlier versions of Windows you were able to Log off and another user could log on without
    having to restart or shutdown the computer first.

    Has the log off function been taken away for Windows 10?

  3. Win 10 log in screen does say which users are logged in

    On shutdown a warning tells me other users are logged in but doesn't say who. If I log out to the Win 10 user list it doesn't say which user is logged in. Windows 7 did. How do I find out which user is logged in?
