  1. Is your recommendation for DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout specific to Windows 10? It appears that on a server OS 2016/2019 that it’s already set to 0. ATM, I’m not sure if a value of 0 means it’s turned off or there is no timeout.

    1. Hi Brandon

      I’ve never seen it make much difference on Server 2019, but you can easily roll the dice and test it I guess. Unless you’re seeing an unexplained delay, then probably best to leave it out if I had to make a recommendation.

  2. One caveat with setting DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout to 1 on win10 is the welcome message at login disappears right away as this setting switches from session 0 to the new account displaying a black screen while explorer loads. 5 or 10 makes a better value as the user gets to see some feedback instead of a black screen.

    1. In my opinion I don’t care about the welcome screen as long as the logon is snappier. Feedback is overrated, IMHO
