Windows 7: Direct password input on log-on screen

Direct password input on log-on screen

Hi!
I didn't find any "various questions" thread so opened a new one for this small question:
Why doesn't the logon screen show me my account with the password input field already availible? It used to, because I only have one account on my laptop and so whenever I turned it on or when it woke up from sleep, the account was already selected so I could just entered my password. Now the Switch users button has appeared and I have to first click on the account so I can then input the password.
I found the solution to disable then Switch users butto, but the account still must be clicked first, as if there were more accounts on the laptop.

Does anyone know why this changed this way?

Hello Rousher,

Have you recently installed anything or made any changes on your computer before this started?

Hmm..well there has been a lot of them for various things. Maybe one that would effect it: I turned on the secret builtin administrator account, so I had two accounts but I disabled it right away.
