    How to enable guest account with file delete upon exit?

    Hi, we recently purchased a group of PCs with Windows 10 installed at our institution. We would like to configure the PCs to have a guest account and when a user logs off the account his or her files would be deleted (much like the guest account of a Mac), is there a way to do it?

    If this is not possible, is there a way to configure the PCs so they are for public use? (such as limit access with files deletion upon logging off)

    Many libraries use DeepFreeze, however, I'm not sure if that will be something you want. Short of enabling Guest account on boot/startup and disabling Guest account on Restart or Shutdown -- I have no idea.

    Looks like this is a common issue not just with Win10 but the previous versions as well, if that's the case I will look into Ubuntu.
