If you didn’t see this pc boot up or watch the previous person log out then you should press the power button in the top right corner of the screen, then press the power button again on the menu that pops up, then finally click restart. After a few seconds you’ll be back here with a fresh session – any changes (good or bad) that the previous user made should be gone and you’ll have a new session that is safe to use.
Saving your documents

Once this computer is logged out any personal files stored on it will be automatically removed and cannot be recovered. This computer will also shut itself down with no warning at 7pm every evening removing all personal files.
