Menu item for 'switch user' ?

Can I create/add a menu item 'switch user' ?
or perhaps a menu item for 'switch to Joe' (or another user name)

I am a recent convert from Win10 where this menu item was available and used.

thanks

Re: A Guide for using Removable USB flash/HD ??

Thanks. The USB flash drives were created on Windows and had files on them.
I reformatted the drive (in linux) as Fat32 and it seems fine now.

Re: Should I Update Xserver-ATI driver with Synaptic?

Good Guess. I have not done updates for levels 4 and 5.
Since they are not done by default I left them alone.
I'll look for info about doing level 4/5 updates and go ahead with them I guess.

thanks
