    Two identical user names on logon screen - why?


    Noticed that I am not the only one facing this issue after a fresh install.
    One way or the other it will be solved, but I wonder why it is showing up in the first place?

    Somewhere along the setup there is a screen that says:
    "Who's going to use this PC? - What name do you want to use?"

    What are users supposed to enter there? The first and last name, corresponding with the Microsoft account name?
    Maybe, if the name inserted there is different from the Microsoft Account name (usually first name+last name), then two logins will show up??
    Just a wild guess.

    In my case two identical logins showed up (first name+last name) in the left hand bottom corner.

    Yes, I always disable password requirement immediately (netplwiz).

    Am not sure whether it has something to do with it... I tried following:
    1. netplwiz, RE-enable password requirement-apply-reboot
    then
    2. RE-disable password requirement-apply-boot

    Things went fine: no password requirement anymore.

    Probably pure luck?

    :)

    The user name or password is incorrect at logon screen


    Hi,

    I've installed Ubuntu side by side with Windows 10.
    After selecting to boot windows from grub bootloader
    I get a logon screen with the message:

    Two identical user names on logon screen - why? [​IMG]

    When I press enter the logon process goes as usual I enter my password and login.
    How can I disable this annoying message ?

    Thanks
    Roey

  3. Windows 10 Logon Screen

    My Logon Screen in Windows 10 shows the following:

    User Name 1

    User Name 2

    User Name 3

    User Name 4

    User Name 5

    Password

    Password

    Password

    Password

    Password

    where "User Names" are the people who have profiles on the machine. It actually says "Password" once for each user. The Control Panel verifies the 5 users listed on the screen. How do I get rid of "Password?"
