Windows 7: Login retaining the last user name.

11 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit edition
Login retaining the last user name.

I know that it possible to set up Windows 7 to either require all users to type in their user name and password at login, or to select their user icon at login.

Is it possible to set up the login so that the user name is retained for the last person to log in and the password is only then required? At the moment if 'User1' logs in to the machine and then logs out again, he has to enter his user name 'User1' again and the password, it would save keystrokes if their user name could be retained. Clearly when a new user logs in then their user name would be the one that would appear in the user name box. This way of logging in is certainly possible in XP.
