    Sign In: Want to select a User Name

    Hi. At the moment, when I start Windows 10, I have to sign in (without giving a password) to the last User that was signed in. In other words I don't have any options as to what User can sign in. But, when I start Windows 10, I want to be presented with a screen where I can see all the Users on my system. Then I want to be able to select which User to sign in. At the moment I'm having to log off to see this screen showing User options. Can I use secpol.msc? Thanks.

    Hello Richard,

    I'm afraid that you will need to have all accounts password protected for this.

    If the last user is not password protected, then since it's selected at startup, it'll automatically get signed in to. A password will stop this.
