In SBS, I just inactivated them. In Windows Server 2016 Standard, there are different options. I can certainly change their sign-on. I can delete them, but I was taught not to completely delete past users. This employee used a O365 account and other licenses such as Adobe, so I want to take out the licenses which I did.

Just wondering what other techs do as a routine. It doesn't seem to give me the option of just inactivating them. But, if I delete them I only have 30 days to think about it.

Also, if an employee gives two weeks' notice, do you just keep their settings as is? Of course, they have to work. But, turn off Access Anywhere? etc.
