    2 Local users on 1 machine, login screen trouble

    Im having trouble configuring the welcome or login screen in the Win10 OS. I have 2 local users, one with password. When i boot the OS, Windows automatically logs into the last logged user. I dont want that. I want to choose between user1 or user2.

    Setting password for each user is NOT an option
    The console tool userpasswords2 (start>run>control userpasswords2) doest not affect the system.

    PC Specs:
    Motherboard Gygabite P43T-ES3G
    CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8400
    RAM: 8GB
    VGA : MSI 570GTX (1280mb, 384bit)
    SSD: A-DATA (the windows is on it0
    HDD: Seagate 1000GB

    Hello Boolz, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You should be able to also use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to have Windows 10 always show all users on the sign in screen. :)

    Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8

    Thanks for the reply,
    It worked only once, the negative effect was that all network adapters was disabled. After i restored defaults all network adapters was up on startup.
    I will continue searching a way to do it.

    I just tested all the options on my Windows 10, and while I don't get the network issue you did, they don't have all users show on sign in by default in Windows 10.

    Hopefully when Windows 10 is fully baked and finished, it will again.
