Windows 7: Straight to Password on Wake, bypass user selection

Straight to Password on Wake, bypass user selection

I am the only user on my work computer, which requires a password on wake. On my previous laptop (Win 7 Pro), when I CtrlAltDel, it would go straight to the password input. On my new computer (Win 7 Enterprise), it makes me select my user name first. I know it's just one click, but it drives me nuts.

Is there a setting to go from CtrlAltDel straight to password input, bypassing user selection?

Does no one have this same issue, or a solution?

This may not be possible. I'm having difficulty finding information on this. Most everywhere I can find seems to imply you cannot go straight to the login for that user on ANY edition of Windows 7 with multiple users, but I know this is false because even my domain computers at work go straight to logging it to the last-logged-in user, with an option to select a different user at the bottom. However, with multiple users on a computer not in a domain, it will always show a list of users to choose from, this cannot be changed except to set auto login, which would bypass your password.

I am the only user, and I connect though a domain. I know it can be done, as that is how I have done it for the last 3 yrs now. I just wish I could find the setting to do the same on my new computer.

If you connect through a domain, you're not the only user. However, it should automatically default to the last logged in user in the username box when logging on to a domain computer. If it doesn't, ask your IT department as it must be a setting they've changed.

OK, thanks msgerbs. I meant I was the only user on this computer. My company has 70,000 people on the domain.
