Windows 7: Win7 Logon option

Win7 Logon option

The option to "hide" a user account from appearing at the logon screen and in the Users area of Windows 7 still works. The process is detailed at the following site:

User Account - Hide - Vista Forums

However, the issue I am finding with this is that Windows 7 does not appear to have the same feature as WinXP of tapping CTRL-ALT-DEL twice at the Welcome screen to bring up a logon/password box allowing you to manually input in the hidden account.

So, my question is how can you access a hidden account at the Welcome screen in Windows 7?

Hello Perilous, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can set Windows 7 to have the users log on with their username and password instead, so that you could enter the hidden user account's username and password this way instead.
