    How to resolve not being able to log out and sign in to an other acc

    So I got 4 user accounts on my pc but I want to be only signed in to 1 acc max.

    So say I'm logged in to acc "Gamer" and want to log out and log in to acc "Webmaster".

    I'm unable to do so. I'm signed in to Webmaster AND Gamer. Consuming thus alot more pc resources for no reason...

    When I log out of Gamer it auto logs me in again.

    I know that its probably cause Windows 10 does multiple desktops a difff way but maybe there is an app or work around?

    Had to DIG DEEP but finally found a working solution:
