    Domain Joined Windows 10 - Fast User Switching


    I recently joined my HP Envy Recline 27 k210na which was upgraded to windows 10 to a Windows 2012 R2 Domain. But have an issue.

    Once I login with a user account, domain or non domain, I am unable to use the fast user switching. When choosing to switch account, I will be taken to the login screen, and when I select 'Other' to login with another account, it takes me to the existing user's password entry screen.

    If I sign out, and select 'Other' to login as a different user, I get the same issue. I have to reboot the machine to be able to login with another user account.

    I restored the pc to factory defaults and upgraded again, then rejoined the domain, but the problem is still there.

    Please help

    When signing in to a Windows PC which has joined a domain with other than a domain account, you need to use a so called full username (ComputerName\UserProfileName).

    In above screenshot example I simply replaced the default domain username with the credentials of a local account using the full username and can now sign in using those credentials.

    Clicking the link How do I sign in to another domain shows these instructions:

    Or you could use ".\username" for local account, without quotes.
