    How do I get rid of old Kiosk user after reverting machine?


    Hello,
    I followed Setup or Remove a Kiosk Account using Assigned Access in Windows 10 this tutorial and it worked fine. So now I reverted back to 'normal' mode... but every time the system reboots it still tries to log in with the non-existent account.
    If it's been removed as per the settings, why does it still come up and how do I get rid of it?

    it looks like you followed the optional step to automatically sign in as the Kiosk account...
    If you like, you could set Windows 10 to always automatically sign in to the kiosk account at startup to not see the sign in screen.
    Removing the Kiosk account doesn't automatically remove an automatic sign in, you'll have to do that yourself.
