  1. How to change windows defaulting to "Other User" on log in?


    Hey guys,

    When I first turn on my pc I am met with the log in screen that says "Other User". When I first installed windows it would show my user account, and I would just have to type in my pin code then I'm in. I don't know how this was changed because I don't believe I changed any settings regarding this, but I just wanted to get it back how it used to be. Nothing is broken it's just slightly inconvenient.

    I attached a picture to show what I'm talking about. I already googled the issue, but nothing that I could find helped me with this issue.

    Thanks,

    Matt

  2. Numlock defaults to off


    To enable NUM LOCK before a user logs on, follow these steps:
    • Run Registry Editor.
    • Move to HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Keyboard
      .
    • Change the value for InitialKeyboardIndicators from 0 to 2.

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

  4. Scoggs Win User

    How to change windows defaulting to "Other User" on log in?

    Domain users immediately logged out

    We got it figured out.

    Below is the guide my boss made to fix the issue:

    After certain Windows updates, standard users (users who are not members of Elevated Group) cannot log into machines that they have not previously logged into. They input their credentials properly but are immediately signed out.

    The cause for this issue is that the Default User profile is corrupted by the update, and the new user cannot create a profile, because the system cannot use the Default profile template to properly create a proper registry key. One will be created, but
    it is corrupted.

    To fix this issue follow these instructions:

    • Log into the affected machine as either local or domain admin
    • Go to C:\Users
    • If you cannot see the Default user folder click “View” and check the box next to “Hidden files”. Be sure to uncheck this box when you are finished with all other steps.
    • Rename the Default folder to “Default.bak”
    • Go to C:\Windows.old\Users (If there’s no Windows.old folder use the backup Default folder in this share to complete the following steps ****see below****)
    • Copy the Default user folder.
    • Go back to C:\Users and paste the Default folder there.
    • If a folder has been created for the affected user, delete it.
    • Deselect the check box next to “hidden files”.
    • Right click over the Windows icon and select Run.
    • In the “Open” window type “regedit.exe” to open the registry editor.
    • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
    • Find the registry entry of the affected user (should have a .bak extension) and delete it.
    • After a restart of the machine the user should be able to log in successfully
