Windows 7: Logon Screen - Fix Showing Only "Other User" and Last Logged On User

03 Apr 2017   #60

Hello Lee, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

If you haven't already, double check to see if what's in the blue note box above step 1 may be the issue.

Thanks but...

I am currently getting a startup screen that has the Admin account listed by itself with a logon password box and a button that says "switch user". When the "switch user" button is clicked, the next screen shows the last user's icon and an icon to "Show other users". I'm shooting for a start screen that displays both of the users and no icon that displays "Show other users." Following the tutorial would have automatically logged in the preferred user.

Do you have the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box checked in netplwiz?

Did you need to do step 7C or 7D in the tutorial on the first page here to delete references to non existing accounts.
