Hello Sandro, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you give any of the user accounts a password, they will then all show up on the log on screen.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

nothing ... i've set password for all users but i always see only one user on logon screen, i see the last one have signed on.

for change user i must click "Other user" and then type username, no way to chose different user to logon with mouse

thanks

Sandro,

Double check to see if you have it set to log on with both the user name and password instead of the default of selecting the user icon and typing in the password?

LOL, well you can set it back to 0 to restore the default log on screen.

Before, did you not have smaller user icons at log on to select to log on and start up in?

Double check to also make sure that you do not have Automatic log on enabled for a user account.

This will show you how to see information on the last user that had logged on though.

I must admit that I have not seen this before. You might consider doing a repair install to see if can fix this for you without losing anything.

Logon screen

If you go to group policy editor and under computer configuration - windows settings - security options - Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name, and make sure it is disabled. That should fix your problem.

Hope this helps.

Did this problem get fixed? I have the same issue. I only have one user listed on my login screen. The last user name shows and the icon, but all other icons missing. How do I get them back? I've tried everything listed here and more.
