    Logon to other accounts through "Other User"


    I am now using Windows 10 (1607 version).

    I want to display certain users on logon screen and also allow login to other accounts through "Other User" (like in Windows 7).

    However, I can only either display all the accounts on logon screen or type both the username and passwords through "Other User".

    Is there any setting about that?

    Thank you.

    :)

    Hiding user accounts

    Hi all,

    So question for you, I have a machine, non-domain, windows 7 home prem. I have a tech account and a user account, when you get to windows logon, it shows tech profile there.is there a way to hide the tech profile from the logon screen...?Or make it so they have to type their credentials in manually to logon..?

    obviously secpol or gpedit would be perfect for requiring control alt delete on logon in windows pro but on home prem i cant figure out a way.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    Glad that your concern about the update has been resolved.

    You can create a new administrator account and then delete the account that has been made by the Answer Desk. Follow the steps below:

    For creating a new administrator account:

    • Go to Control Panel > User Accounts > User Accounts > Manage another account > Add a new user in PC settings > Add someone else in this PC.
    • Enter the credentials needed.
    • Click the account that you have made and then click the Change account type
      option.
    • Choose Administrator and then click OK.
    • Restart your computer.
    For removing the account that you don't want to see on the logon screen of your computer.

    • Go to Control Panel > User Accounts > User Accounts > Manage another account >
      click the account that you are referring to > Delete the account.
    • Choose whether to Delete Files or Keep Files
      for that specific account.
    Let us know how it goes.
