    My wife has her separate user account in Windows 10 and I have mine. She needed to download Jobulator for her work. It asked for my password since I am listed as administrator. While she was signed on her account via Windows 10, she downloaded Jobulator. Now, when I sign on to my account I see her program listed and sitting on my screen. It stays on top of other windows and in reality I don't need or require the program. If I delete if from my main Windows screen will it delete it from her use? Thanks for the help.

    If it is a standard program that installed on the computer, what you are seeing are just shortcuts to it, You can safely delete them from your profile. The program will not be affected and she will retain her own shortcuts in her profile. If the program is set to start at logon, you will need to modify that behavior.
