Windows 7: When pressing Win+L I want to go back to MAIN logon screen

When pressing Win+L I want to go back to MAIN logon screen

On Windows XP, when I pressed Win+L from a logged in account, it always went back to the main logon screen, where I can see all my accounts.

But on Windows 7, it goes to the logon screen of the actual useraccount I just left. So then I have to click on Switch User when I need to see all my accounts.

How do I configure Windows 7 so that it always goes back to the main logon screen when pressing Win+L ?

Many thanks.

The only workaround I found is to make shortcut icon to: C:\Windows\System32\tsdiscon.exe on your desktop.

If you want all users to have access to the same shortcut, drop the shortcut in c:\Users\Public\Desktop.
