    Windows 10 last user remains logged in after reboot


    Hi all,

    After installing the Fall Creators Update I noticed that the last user remains logged in after a computer reboot. I noticed this as the task manager shows this user as disconnected user if I log in with a different account after the restart.
    I also get a message at the next shutdown that another user is logged into the computer and might loose work.

    Can someone indicate how to solve this

    Thanks
    Ron

    Fix?
    Just sign out before shutdown...

    I noticed this too. Is there a setting somewhere to make it work the way it used to? That is, to log the user out on shutdown/restart.

    Did not find a setting so far. Upgraded a second system at home which had the same behaviour. Seems like a bug in Fall Creator's update.

    First, I agree this is a bug but also know it doesn't effect all computers.

    To ensure a proper log out use Alt-F4 or one of the command prompt shutdown commands.

    When you log into another account there are two ways to ensure your account is the only ?active? account.
    Task manager > tab Users. If the other account is still ?active? it will be reported as disconnected.

    Start > Switch Users icon. the other account will be reported as being signed in.

    I now use Alt-F4, after decades of training to use shutdown or restart. Using the Switch user icon is, perhaps, the best method as selecting the signed out user allows logging into the account, signing out, and relogging to the "correct" account.

    For the other new 'feature' in 1709 that does affect all PCs, (apps that reopen after a restart) I have already put a workaround in place. You may find it more convenient than Alt+F4.

    Create a folder named Power, put two shortcuts in that folder, one for a restart shutdown.exe /r /t 0 and one to shut down shutdown.exe /p then you can add the folder as a toolbar on the taskbar for easy access.

    Hello Ron, :)

    You can turn off the Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart setting to stop this when the computer automatically restarts for an update.

    Brink, this weekend I stumbled against a link describing exactly what you say. This indeed solves the problem. I've now turned off this setting for all users on the computer and no more users remain logged in after a reboot.
    Thanks for your help!!
