Windows 10: How to know whether a user account is logged in?

    How to know whether a user account is logged in?


    On previous versions of Windows, on the main login screen, where all the user accounts are displayed, Windows would inform us whether a user account is signed in (or not). However, on Windows 10, this feature seems to have disappeared.

    It just lists the user accounts on the left hand side of the screen, without mentioning whether it's logged in or not.

    Is there anyway of enabling this?

    Cheers.

    Hello tengeezer,

    As a workaround, you can open the Task Manager in more details view, and click/tap on the Users tab to see a list of all users that are currently signed in. You can also sign off users from here.
