Windows 10: automatic login of Hotmail (Outlook mail) needs to be disabled

    automatic login of Hotmail (Outlook mail) needs to be disabled


    Hi
    On my laptop using Windows 10 with Edge browser or IE11 browser when I go to Hotmail (now Outlook mail) I must sign in....always.
    On My Windows 10 desktop using Edge browser when I select Hotmail (now Outlook mail) it automatically signs into my email. This is not good if others were to use my computer, they have acccess to my Hotmail email.
    How do I stop this automatic sign in from happening? I prefer to sign in every time like on my laptop. I have tried a few things with no luck.
    Help appreciated.

    Hi Ron.

    Is your password being saved by Edge. Three dots upper right, settings, Advance settings, Privacy and services, Manage Passwords.

    Actually if I were you I would set up a Standard account for them to used. No admin rights and no access to your data or apps.

    Hi Ken
    Thank You for the reply. I will try the three dots and look at manage passwords again... I may have missed something there.
    You mentioned this, "I were you I would set up a Standard account for them to used. No admin rights and no access to your data or apps."
    Could you give a heads up about what to do? for that suggestion Please.

    Thanks

    Sure.

    Start => Settings => Accounts => Family and other people => Add

    Watch MS will try to get you to use an MS account. Just say you don't have this person sign in information.

    It will default to a standard account. If they are set up as standard they can't look at your stuff. You can test my signing in as this person.

    When you are finish using PC and you are at your desktop you can ALT+F4 to get a menu. One option is sign out or switch user.
