    Login screen shows always last user and "other user"


    I have two accouts (one domain account, one local account ) on my laptop with Windows 10 pro, Version 1803. The login screen always shows the last user and not the second possible user for choice but "other user". Is it possible to show both, the domain account and the local account? Thank You!!

    Hello Freeman, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Just to verify, you don't see the local account at the bottom left corner on your sign-in screen like below?



    If not, check to make sure you have "Don't display last signed-in" disabled.

    In addition, check to make sure "Don't display username at sign-in" is disabled.

    Hello Brink,

    sorry for answering so late. I always see the last signed in user name and "other user". What I want when I start my laptop in the morning is both user names in the sign in screen. And this should not change, when I signed in with one of the two users. I always want to see both users and choose between them.

    Thank you very much, Freeman

    If I'm not mistaken I think Freeman is asking whether it is possible to have the logins side by side as it was in Windows 7.

    If yes, I would also be interested to know whether it is possible to enable the old style login screen.

    Thanks.

    "Anderer Benutzer" means "other user". The displayed user "MenzPrivat" is shown, because it was the last user, who was logged in.

    This is normal behavior to have the last user selected by default on the sign-in screen.

    Both accounts are shown on your sign-in screen though at the bottom left.

    You would need to select the "Other User" account at the bottom left to switch to it and sign in with that account instead.

    Was there something different you wanted it to show or not show?

    I thought it is possible to show ALWAYS both users, which ist MenzPrivat and Menz. But when I shut down the laptop and restart it, the last user and the "other user" is is shown. When I first login with MenzPrivat and then change the user to Menz there are even three login possibilites are shown: Menz, MenzPrivat an "other user".

    Thank You very much for your help!

    I'm not aware of a way to show the actual name of domain users on the sign-in screen at the bottom left instead of "Other Users".
