Always have to type username at login?

Hello, I and about 15 employees are all running Windows 7 pro on 64 bit lenovo laptops In the past, when we start the laptop and get to the logon screen, all we has to do was enter our password, now we have to enter our usernames and passwords every time we login. How can this be changed to have the usernae in place as it was before and just having to enter the password?

If your computer is part of a domain this could be by design or a decision by the administator.

We are on a domain, but everyone in the organization generally already has their usernames pre-entered and only having to enter the pass. I will check the link. Thanks!

It's likely because there is more than one User, so it must know the user who is to sign in.
