    How to make Windows always show login for a specific user account?


    We have two accounts on our Windows 10 pro. Admin and Standard user. Both have different passwords.

    Issue: If I log in under Admin, say to install updates, and then reboot computer. Upon later boot the login screen will show Admin for the login. This is confusing for the users of this PC when they try to enter the password for the standard user account.

    Question: Is there a way to make Windows show the login screen for a specific Standard user account ALL THE TIME, no matter who was logged in last?

    :)

    Custom Windows user account

    I need to create a user account (Windows 7) and have it limited to one website. I also don't want the user to have access to anything else like the start menu and desktop. I want the user to login then be taken directly to a specific website automatically. How would I go about doing this? I've been reading a lot about consoles, but I'm not sure where to start. Thanks

  4. How to make Windows always show login for a specific user account?

    User account does not appear on login screen

    Hello Timothy,

    Thank you for keeping us posted with the results and providing us with important details.

    To be able to understand the issue better, let us know a few more detaisl on the below questions.

    1. Did you make any recent software or registry changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    2. Were you facing any user specific issues in Windows?

    Now, as an initial recommendation, I suggest you to login through one of the local accounts and navigate to Settings > Accounts.

    If the above does not reveal any user accounts, I suggest you to open Advanced User Accounts Control Panel to check if the referred user accounts exists or not. Please follow below.

    • Press the Windows key and R from the keyboard to open the Run Command Dialog Box.
    • Enter netplwiz

    If it still does not help, refer to the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.

    • In Command prompt type
      sfc/scannow
      and press enter.

    • Restart the computer.
    Ref: Using System File Checker
    in Windows 10


    Method 2

    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state or were irrecoverable, then I suggest you to try the following steps to deploy the DISM command lines:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click command prompt (Run as administrator).

    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

      To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.

    Method 2

    Try to revert the operating system to a previous working state and check if the user accounts show up.

    Check if there is any Restore Point already created, follow the below steps.

    • Press Windows key + X, select System.

    • In the left pane, click on System Protection.

    • Select the option to system restore > next. It will show all restore points already created.

    Write to us with the updated results for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank you.
