windows 10 home -  user, group removal, disappears?

Hello experts.  I've honestly not done much to get on the windows 10 bandwagon, while over the last few days had to work on a win 10, not pro, but Home edition issue.  The last thing I did was create a admin user(local) and then remove the home user from the administrators group. Once they logged off and logged back in  and even rebooted, discovered the non admin user was no longer showing as an option to switch to.  Once i added them back to the administrators group, which I dont want them to be an admin, they had it avaialable again.  

What's MS doing on windows 10 and home edition that is causing this?  How do i make the user a non admin and still be able to see it as an option to switch to with all original files/settings still there?  

Thank you.
