Windows 7: only display one account with Switch User button

only display one account with Switch User button

Hi,

I have Windows 7 Pro and have two accounts, a Standard User and an Administrator account. The logon screen by default shows two icons, one for each account. I want the logon screen to default to only showing the Standard User account and have the admin account accessible by clicking the Switch User button. Is there a way someone knows of doing this?

thanks

Try this


Run>secpol.msc

Local policies -> Security settings

Find the entry "Interactive Logon: Hide last user..." and set it to activated.

Reboot.
