Windows 7: Can I put the user login icons in the taskbar in W7?

Can I put the user login icons in the taskbar in W7?

I'm setting up a new computer with W7 Home Premium as the OS.

My wife uses a QWERTY keyboard but I've shifted to a Dvorak (it helps my wrist pain). I've set up W7's language selections so that the Admin and I have the Dvorak keyboard, and my wife has the QWERTY. And that's all working properly.

I've found the Windows options, change user process to shift among the three users and their S/W keyboards. Is there a way to simplify that? Can I place a copy of the two user icons (or any other button) on the task bar (or anywhere else) that would allow a single mouse click to shift between users?

I'd sincerely appreciate any suggestions that you can offer.

Very respectfully,
Larry
