Windows 7: Switch User screen after Screensaver/standby wakeup

Switch User screen after Screensaver/standby wakeup

Hi Guys,
A very minor question. I was wondering if it's possible to show the "Welcome Screen/Switch User" screen after the computer is woken up from screensaver or standby. I know it's really easy for a user to click on the "Switch User" button on the "lock page", but still I want to make it easy for my mom.

Hello SimFox, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can set Windows 7 to show the log on screen when the computer resumes from wakeup, and after a screen saver (step 9). She can also switch users from the log on screen as well if she wanted to.

Hope this helps,
