03 Sep 2009   #1

Windows Xp, Windows 7, Ubuntu
Displaying only 1 user at the login screen.

At the login screen there administrator and user1 . I want only user1 to appear. And when i want to log into administrator i would click switch and the administrator login would appear. Is this possible or does administrator is always display. And no i don't want to delete the administrator account. Thanks.

There is a method in the group policy editor to revert the logon to the old system whereby you have to press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the log in box but I am unaware of an option to hide a user

In the Group Policy Editor.
Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options.
In the right-hand pane look for the policy:
Interactive logon: Do not display last user name - Change to Disabled.

User Account - Hide - Vista Forums

Using this method, when the Admin logs off, the Admin should log on as the user and then log off again.
