Windows 7: Disable "user locked" screen in windows 7

Disable "user locked" screen in windows 7

I've set up a secondary account on my Windows 7 machine and I need to find out how to disable the switch user thing.

In Windows XP, I could hit winflag+L and switch user as I would instantly be taken to the user list.

In Windows 7, for some reason they had to complicate everything. When I hit winflag+L it just displays a picture of my account and a "Switch User" button, which for me serves no purpose what so ever.

Is there any way I can regain Windows XP's user switch functionality in Windows 7, where winflag+L takes me directly to the user list on the login screen?


Thanks in advance

First, everyones situation is important to them. Bumping does not speed up the process, in fact it may slow it up, since we all think that you just posted.

Click Start button>
Little arrow at bottom by shut down
Switch user.


Hope this helps

Here's a tutorial: Switch User Shortcut - Create

I would suggest you spend a little time and become familiar with the "Tutorials" forum. It might save you some time and aggravation.

first of all, I was going to bump a tutorial thread, so I wrote the reply but changed my mind.
And no, not all situations are important. My low-prio problems I usually let go and focus on more important things while stuff that bugs me more majorly I spend more time trying to resolve.


Anyhow, thanks for the help
