    Can't switch user in upgraded install of 10240

    I'm facing a strange problem on one of my rigs. I have 3 MSAs on it, but I simply can't switch user. I see the other accounts in "Settings", but when I log off or try to fast switch I don't have other user options.

    Hello Vladimir,

    Odd. Double check to see if you may be able to switch users using one of the options in the tutorial below. :)

    Hello Shawn,

    Very odd indeed ! After some time trying to switch I decided to remove all Microsoft Accounts from that rig, log in with a local account, remove all members of my family in MSA settings and add them again. Now it's working normally.

    Thanks anyway !
