Windows 7: Using a hidden profile in Windows 7

Using a hidden profile in Windows 7

Is it possible to hide a user profile and still using it by changing the login screen to ask both username and password?
I know that usually on the login screen I can only see profiles that arenīt hidden (which makes logging to a hidden account impossible), but if I change the logging on to ask both username and password can I log in to that hidden profile?

Thanks for your responses.

Hello Wappe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you could use the tutorial below to set Windows to where users have to log on by entering both the user name and password.

Log On with User Name and Password

Hope this helps,
Shawn

i think what you are wanting is the standard login screen with the names and pictures. but when you click on a profile you still have to enter a username and password?
