    Windows 10 Home - "Other user" on Login - Unable to see Local Account


    This has just started happening this week on Dell and HP desktops with Windows 10 Home. I have a local account for Administrator access on all of them but a few of these PCs have changed behavior and now show the "Other user" login screen. I have to type the admin name and password to log on. Not the biggest problem, but it gets worse.


    Once I create a new Local account for a non-admin user on these PCs my original Admin account becomes inaccessible. The "Other user" login display is replaced with only the new Local user account who does not have Admin access. When UAC pops up there is only a "NO" button, no "YES" button or ability to enter my Admin password.


    Any suggestions or explanation are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

  2. Use a Local user Account to login to Windows 10 PC

    Hello Vojta,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that you want a Local user account to login to your computer.

    • Click Start and then PC settings.

    • Click Users and accounts and under your Profile select “Sign in with a local account instead ” option.

    • Enter the required details.

    • Type in a Username, Password, and Password Hint that you want set for your Local account and click
      Next. Click on Sign out and Finish button.

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you further.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 Home - "Other user" on Login - Unable to see Local Account

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows 10 Home - "Other user" on Login - Unable to see Local Account :(
