Windows 7: Don't display last user name?

Don't display last user name?

Hi I have windows 7 Professional 64 bit and I was wondering if there was anyway that I could have the "other" user account enabled (where you have to type in your username and password) and have a standard account enabled to click on and just type in the password. I've been searching everywhere online and in the local group and policy editor. Please help!
