    Windows 10 is automatically logging on to last user

    Hi All,

    I just upgraded to windows 10. I have 3 users (Me as administrator) my wife and kid as normal users.
    When my wife has been logged on and she shuts down the PC then it automatically logs on to her account when i start PC again. This is annoying. I would like it to start at the user choice screen så i can choose which user i want to log on.
    Is this possible? I have not been able to "fix" this.
    Thank you all for your help

    Hello Spytman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    To stop Windows from automatically signing into the last user, you will need to add a password to all accounts on the PC.

    That is truly crap. Has Apple taken over Microsoft - it seems we're being told how we can and can't use our Operating Systems these days.

    Neither I nor my family want to type passwords, we just want our own desktop, shortcuts etc. We don't want or need passwords.

    The implementation is flawed anyway - none of us have passwords, so it automatically logs in the last user?? Who on earth would want that behaviour on a multi-user OS?

    I'll be reverting to 7.
