    shut down of PC without sign off of other user


    I have two user, one with admin rights and other local standards. I have set up my PC to automatically sign in local user. My question is if admin sign in without sign off of local and thus shut down the PC, a message appears that another user is already sign in and will lose his work if shut down. Because I know no file is open in other user, so whether shut down the PC regularly without signing off other user will harm PC in any way.

    No, it definitely won't harm anything. You seem to be aware of what the message means, so forgive the following example. If the standard user has an unsaved Word document open and you choose to shut down from the admin account, that doc's changes won't be saved.

    Thanks for confirming. Though I understand the same thing but I am not an expert so your confirmation made me rest assured. Thanks again
