    Background audio (Pandora) turns off when switching user

    When I had windows 7 I could go to my internet browsing user (my only user with internet access) and navigate to the Pandora Music Webpage (or youtube or whatever) and start streaming music, and when I switched to my other user that did not have internet access for security reasons (not log off, just switch user) I could still hear the music.

    Now that I've upgraded to windows 10 the music turns off when I switch users. Any ideas how I can get my internet streaming audio to continue to play when I switch to a user that doesn't have internet permissions?

    Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way to fix this. Honestly, it seems like a bug that they fixed in 10 (or even in 8/8.1)
