    2 avatars


    Win 10 suddenly started showing 2 avatar places on the login screen, but I only have one active user account.

    Hi and welcome to TenForums,
    You might verify if the Guest account is enabled :/
    Does it say the same user name or something else ?
    Post a picture of it,
    Cheers.

    It's a known bug. But until now, Microsoft engineers are stumped.
    I have it, too. Only 1 user on this PC.

    Yikes I have never seen that in either build :/
    Might be tied to the on screen keyboard ?

    Well, BadRobot answered the question. But so far that is the only problem I have had with 10. The only glitch I ran into was when I installed it as a dual boot on an older Gateway e295c, Vista Business, based laptop. Ten didn't have a driver for the touch pad, and the Vista version wouldn't load. So I searched Gateway's website for the oldest laptop I could find with win8. I tried that driver and boom, it worked. So I learned something there.

    There's no performance impact on this problem. I can live with it.

    I have that also. I just thought it was my old lappy. Wonder if the next build will put another on the login screen?

    I'm beginning to wonder if the complexity of todays software has exceeded the ability of the software engineers to understand it. I have enjoyed the "Terminator" series of movies, however, but with today's state of the art software skynet would surely crash, and what fool would reboot it!

    It`s not a bug, one is for your local account and one is for the Microsoft account.

    Disconnect from your Microsoft account, sign in to the local account, then........

    Set your pc to auto logon and you too will have 2 logon pics.
