Hi,

we have a single pc without any domain. It is used only for browsing the web. This computer should auto logoff after 5 minutes of inactivity. Open documents should be discarded and some files (temp files, downloaded files...) should be deleted during this process.

Any build in windows10 solutions or 3rd party software (freeware would be nice)

thanks

Task scheduler can be used for this. Trigger: on idle. Action: logoff console

Task planner don´t work because to many things can prevent the machine do get idle. I found a nice tool idlelogoff.exe which makes exact what i need
