    What Start Menu option to Log out current user?


    Can't find how to log out a user in Windows 10.... ?
    I happen to know the command line option for this ("logout", I believe) so I can still do it - but why has MS removed it from the Power options and where is it now? Searching for it in the Start menu does not bring it up - only offer to search the web -duh!

    Found it myself: Right click on the user name in the Start menu.

    You can also always use the Windows Shut Down dialog. Click an empty spot on desktop and press ALT + F4 to open it:
