Windows 7: Allow Username and Password to Login to Windows7

Allow Username and Password to Login to Windows7

I am runing Windows 7 Home Premium and would like to change the way I login from the default screen showing all the users to a screen that DOES NOT SHOW ANY USERS and prompts for the user to enter their Username and Password Manually?

Also how do you get it to remember the last person who logged in have the Username populated with it?

I have been all over the Answers Home Page and found others who are using the old windows xp style login page that prompts for a user name and password but could not find any reference on how to change from the default Windows 7 page. I have spent hours on gogle trying diffrent search text without any luck.

Please help, I know it can be done!

Thanks! It worked! Is there anyway to eliminate having to now click on "Other" to get to the login screen as a default?
