How to prevent logging in to last user account in windows 10


How to stop auto login to the last logged in user in windows 10. This question has been around since Windows 10 came out and there’s plenty of frustration showing up on the forums for windows 10.

There is a general war cry going, fix this bug Microsoft or I’ll go back to windows 7, or worse, I’ll turn to Linux! There have been registry hacks on various forums to change the value of the last user account but this has been blocked by recent updates.


To log into a different user account you can log in from with the exiting open user account. To do this just follow these steps:

  1. from within the current account press windows key + L
  2. the lock screen will be activated and in the lower left you can choose which account to login to

Recent changes made the other users show up at the logon screen. Look for other accounts in the lower left of the login screen.
