    Hi Sarah,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I apologize for the inconvenience caused. We are glad to help you.



    Please share a few details:


    • What exactly happens when you try to switch users?

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to Switch users.


    • Press Ctrl + Alt + Del key altogether.

    • Click on Switch User.

    • Select the user with which you want to login.


    If computer starts up with a user other than the one you want, login to that user account and switch user to the account that you need and check.

  3. jpanzo Win User
    Cannot see/login into other users at Login or Switch Users


    Hi all,

    My computer has three users on it (John, Lawrence, and Elizabeth). The problem right now is that John is the only one that can login to the computer.

    For Lawrence and Elizabeth, their users don't appear at the login screen (not even in the bottom left hand corner). When the computer starts up, John is already selected to login and just has to input his password.

    Also, when logged in as John, you are not able to see the "Switch User" button when clicking on the top left button of the start menu.

    I have tried following already:
    1. Running the "secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbos" script in the command prompt
    2. Using the lusrmgr.msc to add the users

    I have attached a screenshot that shows how there are multiple users on the computer, but there is no "Switch User" option available.

    Anyone know what is going on and how to fix it?

    Thank you,
    John Panzo

    Switch user at startup

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you cannot see the switch user option after the upgrade I will make sure to help you with this issue.

    First I suggest you to reboot the system and check if see the switch user option.
