A lot has changed with the new Windows 8 interface. We want to help familiarize you with the new features! Let’s start with how you can sign out of a user account in Windows 8
What is a user account sign out ?
There are several reasons why users should sing out of Windows 8. One reason could be preventing unauthorized access if you want to leave your computer unattended, for more on the topic see our locking the computer article. Another reason for the user log off is to increase the speed, if there are too many registered users, it can slow down the computer, and therefore we recommend always logging off if the account won’t be used soon after.
