Instead, as long as you are using the same Windows user account, you only have to log in with your username and password once every few days, and can open the Company File or switch to another Company File without having to re-enter your login credentials.
You will be required to enter your username and password again only if you have explicitly logged off from the Company File or when the login period set has expired.
Note: This login feature is not available if your file is on a hosted environment that uses roaming profiles.

Note: Once this option is enabled, go to File > Close Company only closes the Company File but not log off the user.
