Correct user when booting

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I want to change the user that comes on when first booting from another user.

Hello Mike, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you mean that you have Windows 7 set to log on to an account automatically at startup, then you have a couple of options.

To change what account Windows will automatically log on to at start up:
Log On Automatically at Startup
To temporarily bypass or override automatic logon at startup to select another account:
Log On Automatically at Startup - Bypass in Windows
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you Shawn. That was very helpfull but I now have a new minor problem. When booting, the new screen shows "that password is incorrect" . I then have to click on the user I want. It asks for the password which I enter and then it says it's incorrect again. I get to the screen I want by just clicking on the arrow on the right of the user account symbol and the correct page shows up. How do I eliminate these pages so that the correct screen comes on automatically.
Thanks again.

It sounds like you may have entered an incorrect password for the selected account. Starting over with the settings to change the password should sort it for you.
