    Can I Prevent Switching Users?

    Over the course of the last few months, I have been experiencing issues logging into my office computer from home as there has been other individuals logging in at my work station using the "Switch User" option. This creates issues for me logging in from home. Locking the computer does nothing to prevent Switching Users. Is there any way to make my Windows 10 computer at work only usable by me....ie, making Switching Users not possible? Thank you in advance.

    Hello Markaz,

    You could use the method in the tutorial to also remove the switch user option in Windows 10 to see if that may help.
