Windows 7: How do I Switch users on Windows 7?

Something tells me that something is wrong because this is all I see




Also You said "Windows 7 only allows up to 10 connections at the same time by default. " does that mean that you can change the maximum connections?


Edit:
I do however have this, Not sure if thats what could be causing it!

No worries. That just means that you do not have any shared folder sessions open. No need to change this since you do not have any.

Next, open Task Manager (CTRL+Shift+ESC), and click on the Users tab to see how many user sessions you have open.

Sorry for the Bump, But I've found something a friend told me to look for

I'm not sure if this is meant to be disabled or not

The Default for Secondary Logon is Manual, so I'd set it there and reboot to see if it solves the problem.

If not then Start the service to see if it can be started.

Shawn asked to see User tab in Task Manager in Post #12.

Dean,

It appears that Fast User Switching for "Switch User" has not been enabled yet. See if using step 3 in Method Two of the tutorial below may help.

I have tried Method Two again, Still says

"The number of connection to this computer is limited and all connections are in use right now"

When I use you're Switch User Shortcut, and It still doesn't show up in the Arrow next to Shutdown

Odd. Did you approve all of the prompts (step 7) and restart the PC after doing step 3 in Method Two?

Nar, the Switch User shortcut will not add anything. It's only a shortcut to directly Switch User.

How long have you had this issue?

Yeah, I restarted a few times and I haven't really noticed until today as this is the main account and I've never had more than one account until my Parents broke their laptop *bloody idiots* xD Is there not a way to extend the amount of users that can login?
