    Multiple users on login screen


    Hi guys
    I'd like to use Prey project on my notebook. I recently updated from windows 8 pro to windows 10. Prey software is effective only if thief can use my notebook.
    I set up guest account without password but every time i start computer I have to enter username and password. the same situation was when i used win8. I tried this Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8
    Also created aconther account with password- still i have to enter username.
    How can i get windows to list users on startup? Or alternative to Prey project?

    Hello atrevc, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Using the tutorial below to enable displaying user names on the sign-in screen should have all users display on the sign-in screen again instead of having to enter both a user name and password to sign in.
