    Shut down issues while changing the account through Switch User

    One day My brother used the PC and he went out for a while, then I came and clicked switch user to enter into my account. Then I did my work after entering into my account . Later on, I finished my work so I thought to shutdown the system. I waited for my brother to come because his account was logged in. But he didn’t came so I did shut down but it shown other user logged in and two programs are running. But I do not know his password so tell me how to handle this kind of situation !!!

    Yes, sometimes you will face this type of situation. There is no other way, you need to know the other user password to stop programs running in that account. It will show you the number of programs that run on the other account. If you do not know the password then choose force shut down for shutting down the system. This may cause some files to get corrupted too. If the program was not saved then that will be deleted too.

    dear friend,

    Truly sometimes we have to face the annoying situation.

    If you want to log on to your brother's account then you must know his password.

    If you don't know then you can log on to his account by cracking the password.

    But it is not ethical to crack someone's administrator password-he may have personal data on his account.

    It is recommended that you must not shut down the computer.

    If your brother was working & didn't saved then all the data will be lost.

    But if you want to shut it down further then you must go for force shut down.

    Hold the power key for some seconds & it'll turned off.

    But it may damage your data.
