Windows 10: Welcome Screen and SpecialAccounts Solved

    Welcome Screen and SpecialAccounts


    How can I configure something like this? I used to be able to do this in older versions, but seems like no longer the case in 10.

    I have a machine with several user accounts that are visible on the Welcome screen, and two that aren't. Back in older versions, I can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and show the regular login prompt to log on to these users, but it seems like no longer the case with 10, CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing.

    Is there anyway to configure the Welcome screen to work like that anymore?

    Hello Toni, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you mean to require users to enter both a user name and password on the sign in screen, then this may help.

    Not quite. I want the first set of users to be displayed, and like in XP such that I can manually log on to the non-listed accounts. I do NOT want users to have to manually enter any user names, these are 5-10 year old kids, and I can use the other two hidden accounts to do maintenance work.

    I have the accounts added under SpecialUsers so it doesn't display, but I can no longer press CTRL+ALT+DEL to get the Classic log on as a backdoor.

    I'm not aware of a way to do that anymore since XP.
