    How to disable a user account in W10 Home?


    I know I can't access the local users and groups policy in this version, but I can't figure on how to -temporarily- disable my kid's user account so that it cannot be logged in.

    Thanks!

    EXCELLENT! Thank you so much Brink. You know, if my daughter were doing better in Math, I wouldn't need to know how to disable an account.

    LOL, funny how it always seems to come back and punish the parent as well.
