    Hi,


    Yesterday I installed Win 10 Pro 2004 build 19041.264 on a laptop. Usually I set up a password but also use the auto login feature available when you open User Accounts via netplwiz. But when I opened User Accounts in the new Win 10 Pro 2004 install the option for "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" was missing. Please see screenshot below.



    Has Windows 10 2004 removed the option for "Users must enter a user name and password to... 30bc632f-83eb-4b15-ba2e-84c5c18efbd7?upload=true.jpg


    Has this been removed in Win 10 Pro 2004? Or is there somewhere I need to go to enable the option to show up again.


    Thanks

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Lock screen - "Other user" option missing User name and Password fields

    This is seen on domain joined Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB

    Under some circumstances clicking the "Other user" option at the lock screen with a user logged in will not display the User name and Password fields. Using tab and enter to select the current user then "Other user" will make them display. Has anybody else
    seen this issue?

    Full repo instructions. There may be a quicker way to get into this state, but this is consistent:

    • Have User1 logged in
    • Lock the screen
    • Enter an empty password 6 times for User1
    • Windows will display "Welcome..." message for a few seconds, then "The password is incorrect. Try again."
    • Clicking ok will go to the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to unlock" screen
    • Click "Other user"
    • Username and Password fields are missing
    To get out of this state:

    • Press Tab untill User1 is highlighted
    • Press Enter
    • Press Tab until "Other user" is highlighted
    • Press Enter
    • User name and Password fields are now displayed

    Hi Susilo,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, I would like to know whether the accounts are local account or Microsoft account. Are you trying to remove the login password?

    If you are trying to remove the login password, I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    • Press windows key + R to open command prompt, and type "netplwiz"
    • Uncheck "user must enter user name and password to use this computer", then click "ok"
    • Enter your user name and password, then click "ok"
    • Restart your computer.
    I would like to inform you that it is recommended to activate the password for security reasons.

    User Name

    Hi Bradford,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description you are willing to have your name instead of email address at login screen.
    If you are using Microsoft account for logging to the system then it will be hard to remove email address and show your name only. However, if you want then you may create new user profile as a local account with administrator permission. In this account
    you may keep the name you want.

    For creating new user profile you may refer to the steps provided below.


    • Press Windows key + R

    • Type control userpasswords2 and click OK

    • Click on add under users tab

    • Click the option, "Sign-in without a Microsoft account

    • Click on Local account

    • Choose a name for the account

    • Add password if you want to

    • Apply and click OK.

    For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below and see if it helps.

    Create a local user account in Windows 10

    If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.
