    Switch user from lock screen

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you want to switch user from lock screen. I’ll certainly help you with the steps.



    Once you lock the computer, to switch from one user account to another from the lock screen, select the user name from the list of available users at the bottom left of the sign-in screen, enter the credentials to sign-in.



    Below is a screenshot of lock screen for reference:

    However, if you wish to switch user without locking the computer, refer the steps mentioned in the article

    Let us know if you need any further assistance, we will be glad to help you.



    Regards,
