Hit the windows button and the L button at the same time, this will lock your account. From the account locked screen you should be able to choose another account.

Note: Don't do this if you don't know the user pass, because you'll be unable yo log back on without it.

Good luck and keep us posted!

In the start menu, look at "shut down", the arrow THERE, then choose switch user.
