  1. Want to allow user to sign in but have list of names hidden


    Have seen a bunch of topics, comments, questions close to this question but no answer to my specific question. Seems like a no brainer to me but no one else seems to want the same thing...... I want the list of users hidden on the Windows 10 login screen, but users should still be able to login in through "Other User" or something. Don't want to disable the accounts, just don't want users to be able to see what other windows accounts are on the "shared" workstation.

    :)

  2. Sign on screen User Name is wrong

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern. Let me help you to fix the issue.



    To assist you better, please provide us more information.


    • How many user account do you have on your system?
    • Are you able to log-in to the system?
    Meanwhile, let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps. I suggest you to remove the username from Credential Manager and check.


    • Type credential Manager on the Windows search bar and select Credential Manager.
    • Now try removing the user name and password by clicking on the credential.
    Hope this helps. Let us know the result.

    Query about changing the User Accounts name

    Hi Jerry,

    Perform the steps mentioned below to change the user account name.

    • Sign in to the Your info page on the Microsoft account website.

    • Under your name, select Edit name.
      If there’s no name listed yet, select Add name.
    • Edit or add the name you want, then choose Save.
      Your Microsoft account name will start to appear or change everywhere you use it.

    Please revert if you still cannot change the user account name.

    Thank you.

    Want to allow user to sign in but have list of names hidden

    Account name user name

    Ok, let's review.
    • Your Microsoft account aliases do not have the len address listed.
    • Your Microsoft account name online is correct.
    • You have a local account on the PC with the len address shown under "Your info".

    I'm pretty sure you are signed in to an app with the len address, and is why you are seeing this.

    As a test, click on the "Stop signing in to all Microsoft apps automatically" link below to see if that may remove it.
