Solved!

startup user

HP Recommended
pavilion
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

pc starts always as the last user who turned off the system

How do I change this ( in windows 7 there was always the choise during startup which user should be used)

 

Is it possible to have it the same way in Windows 10

Hi @theo33

 

Try these steps -

 

1) In the search box, type and open Run. 
2) In the Run window, type secpol.msc and click on Ok. 

3) Double Click on "Local Policies" > "Security Options" > Look for "Interactive logon: Don't display last signed-in".

 

 

4) If it is enabled, disable it by right clicking on the option. Go to "Properties" and then click on "Ok".

Try pressing the Windows and the R button together. It will open the Run window.

Please check for any spaces while typing SECPOL.MSC

 

There should be no spaces.
