Windows 7: Show multiple Users on Login Screen

14 Aug 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate
Show multiple Users on Login Screen

My home pc (Win7 Ultimate) is part of my business domain, but I also have local user accounts for my wife and kids.

At the login screen there is a icon for the last user that logged in and another labeled "Other Users" for the rest of the users, so that if a different user needs to login they have to select "Other Users" then enter the DOMAIN/USERID and password to logon.

Is there a way to have it show all three users with their icons at the login screen so they can just click their icon and enter their password (all have passwords) to logon. Getting them to enter the DOMAIN/USERID correctly everytime is a challenge since the slash has to go the correct way and the domain name is somewhat long.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the forum,

This looks like it should help you with that,

So I take it that the answer is NO. The thread that you pointed me to has serveral people trying to solve the issue but the last post in the thread seems to address it in summary.

Greez......this has never been a feature for domain login, even in the older OSs, the domain login and wether or not you want the last logged on user displayed. is set in your domain policies. By design the local user list etc., that are being discussed here, are not availible on a domain joined pc.

Winodws 7 Professional 32 bit
windows 7 logon screen problems

I am running Windows 7 32-bit Professional and I have two local user account on my computer (Administrator Profile and Students Profile). Problem is once I join computer to domain, at logon screen only last logon profile is shown and if I want to logon as a second user I have to choose "logon other user" option, then I have to type computer name/user account, especially that I create students user account for non domain user to use the computer. Is there any way once logon screen appear two user account shown instead of one only "which is last logon user"?

Please if you got the answer for same problem, let me know.
With many thanks if you have solution or not.
