Sign out another user in Windows 10

Windows 10 allows multiple users to log in at the same time. Each active session consumes resources, drains RAM, and slows down your computer’s performance. In this guide we will show you, like you from your own session log another user out of their profile to improve your computer’s performance.

The first method is log into the active session you want to close, and perform the operation manually. To do this, open the Start menu and click on your own account’s avatar to go to the logout screen.
