    You can remove the option of quickly switching user accounts on Windows 10. Here's why you might want to, and how to do it.

    In Windows 10, "Fast User Switching" is a useful feature, and its primary purpose is to offer a way to quickly switch from one account to another while keeping the previous user signed in. Although it's a convenient option to have on a shared computer, Fast User Switching has a few caveats. For example, while users are still signed in, you can't turn off the device, because they may lose their unsaved work. In addition, signed in accounts still consume system resources (processor, memory, and disk), and depending on the computer's hardware, running apps and services when you have multiple accounts running simultaneously can slow down the user experience.
    If you find that Fast Users Switching isn't a feature you want available when sharing a computer, Windows 10, lets you disable the feature using the Local Group Policy editor and the Registry.
