Windows 10: Login Screen Help Solved

    Login Screen Help


    I recently built a gaming tower for my nephews to share. It's running Windows 10 Pro x64. Everything works fine, but I'm having trouble getting the login screen to act like I want it to. The system has three total accounts. One for each of them, and the Administrator account that's password protected. Neither of their accounts have passwords.

    I'd like to have the system boot to a login screen with all three users listed. All they have to do is click their name. If I clock administrator, I get the password prompt. Right now, the system boots and auto logs in to one of the open accounts. I was able to get it to stop at a CTRL+ALT+DEL screen. However, once you hit CTRL+ALT+DEL, it immediately auto logs in to the same account.

    Is my only option setting passwords on each account?

    Hopefully once they type their name and click on arrow it will accept not having password.

    The whole point about accounts is so each users has privacy from other users. So each use should have a password. For local accounts, you can make the passwords very simple e.g. a single latter - totally insecure of course.

    The two boys ended up fighting over who's profile was being used and who was playing who's games. So, I left my admin account with a strong password and made them choose a password for themselves. That solved several issues, technical and non-technical.
