Windows 10: How to sign/log out Solved

    How to sign/log out


    Occasionally a change made with a program requires you to log/sign out and back in before it will take effect. I use TweakUI to remove the arrows from the desktop shortcuts. (Yes, I know there are other ways.) I'm on Build 10122 and when I went to log out I couldn't find a way to do it. In Win 8 its a shutdown option. I'm the administrator, only user, and login is set to automatic so that may be why the option to logout is not available. Of course I can (and did) reboot but that takes much longer. How do I logout in Win 10?

    I noticed there is no "Switch User" any more. When did that go away?

    Ah! Start10 from Stardock puts it back. Another + for them.

    ctrl-alt-del - yes! It's been around for MANY years, now. Can still get you out of a hung comp situation.

    Betas me but they've removed, or moved so many other things I wouldn't be surprised if they did.
