    Remove Sign out from User Name and Power User Menu


    Trying to lock down a tablet running Win 8.1 It's set to auto log in so I don't want the user to be able to sign out. Any ideas how to disable or remove it?

    THanks

    In registry editor go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

    double click on shutdownautologon and write value 0 instead of 1.

    I'm trying to remove the Sign Out option. The computer auto logs in fine. But if the user hits sign out, then they click Other User and log in with another account which I'm trying to prevent. Click image for larger version

    Hello Chris, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could password protect the user accounts to prevent user from being able to sign in to any other account than their own.
