If you log off of one account before opening the next, then there will be no performance issues. Having several accounts logged on to at the same time (and having programs open in each potentially) can create performance issues, primarily RAM related.

Windows logo is disabled so we only need to log off first before log into different account.How is it possible to log in several accounts at the same time having this type of setting?

Press window+L and you will be prompted for a switch user menu. Pick another account and fill in the username and passwords. Yes, that consumes a lot of RAM just because 2 or more account is multi tasking. :thumbsup:
