Windows 7: Windows Security Logon

Windows Security Logon

I have an issue. How do I change the domain when the attached window pops up? As of now the domain defaults in as the computer name. This isn't an issue if you are only connecting to one domain all the time but that isn't real-world for consultants.

So, every time I connect to another client's share-point I have to change my user-name to be their domain name. For instance, in this example my computer name is BME but what if I have to connect to a domain that is ADS? This is the only issue I have with Windows 7 so any help would be appreciated!

Press "Use another account" then use ADS\username for the username.

Oh, I've never tried that. So you can change the domain by using it as part of your user name? Thanks. I'll have to give it a shot.

You're welcome.

Yes, you can specify domain two ways

domain\user

or

user@domain

also, in place of the domain you can substitute it for a computer name. It all depends on which credentials you know (the credentials of a computer versus credentials of the domain).
