    Multiple users on login screen


    Hi guys
    I'd like to use Prey project on my notebook. I recently updated from windows 8 pro to windows 10. Prey software is effective only if thief can use my notebook.
    I set up guest account without password but every time i start computer I have to enter username and password. the same situation was when i used win8. I tried this Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8
    Also created aconther account with password- still i have to enter username.
    How can i get windows to list users on startup? Or alternative to Prey project?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 - Login prompt - On-Screen keyboard or Keyboard layout change

    See if pressing Win+Spacebar does anything different.

    The Accessibility menu button should always be there. The OSK can be activated that way.



    Good luck

    Windows 10 login issue

    The above method is fine if I want to login as a "other user", but I want the screen to pop up and show the users on my computer so I can select which user I want to log into the computer with.

    With having the "other user" screen come up I have to input the name in order to log into that account.

    A screen needs to come up that has the different account users on the computer and then allow you to log into that account. This method needs to be the same as it was in Windows 7. I can get the correct login screen via the method I first described in my
    question, but it's a bad work around. Is it that complicated to simply create a login screen if a computer has multiple accounts on it and then be able to select the account you want to log into? This should be a simple fix since this is how you used to log
    into a multiple account computer.

    Multiple users on login screen

    Hello atrevc, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Using the tutorial below to enable displaying user names on the sign-in screen should have all users display on the sign-in screen again instead of having to enter both a user name and password to sign in.
