Windows 7: No switch user option on login screen

16 Jan 2017   #1

Windows 7
No switch user option on login screen


The computer has a admin and a normal user account.

On start up the user automatically logs in.
If go to the start menu or press ctrl alt del I'll get an option to switch user, however when I get to the login screen there is no option for anything other then administrator.

The registry is set so that fast user switching is enabled. As well the local group policy editor logon option is set so that "hide entry points for fast user switching" is disabled.

Any ideas?
