    By default after restart Windows logs into last account.

    If you want to show the list of all users (not just sign on to the last one) you need to make a task scheduler entry I believe.

    Make Windows 10/8 Show All User Accounts on Login Screen | Password Recovery

    It might be easier to make a simple password of "123" and train James and Rober to use it while Sally keeps her own secret.

    I have seen 1 user with Administrative Rights that used a password and 1 Standard user without a password. Both were Local accounts. The Standard user couldn't access the first user's files.

    hi
    but when you boot or restart can you select the user?

    Yes, they could. If already logged on there's the right-click of the Start button and choose Sign out to change.

    There is another way. You could force Ctrl+Alt+Del key press at log on. Then no-one is signed on automatically. You do need Windows 10 Pro for this though.

    Enable, Disable Secure Logon in Windows 10

    I still think setting a password is better though. James and Rober might want to keep thing private in future. They start with "123" and change it to their own thing later.

    I'm assuming they are children, if not please excuse me.
