Fast User Switching disabled after Windows Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 10 1709 x64

    CU May 19th 4505062 and CSU June 11th KB4503284 were installed last week.  The option to Switch User is now missing from the user menu in Start.  

    A gpresult report does not show "Hide Entry Points for Fast User Switching" as being confirmed on the client and so the patch seems to have switched this to disabled by default.  

    Setting "Hide Entry Points for Fast User Switching" in local gpedit.msc brings the option back.  The option says "Switch Account" now.

  • Hello,
    Thank you for posting in our TechNet forum.

    Is our Windows 10 1709 x64 a domain-joined machine? It sounds like the machine is not in the domain.

    Please confirm the above question, then I will do a test in my test environment.





    Best Regards,
