Windows 10: Login Account Choices

    Login Account Choices


    HI Group, I have 2 accounts. When I boot up, I get into one account or the other. What I want is to go directly to the screen where I have the choices of which account I want to go into. As it is, I have to go into the account that comes up and then switch users to get to the account I want. I've poked around quite a bit trying to figure this out. I hope I'm being clear.
    Appreciate any help.

    This Tutorial, Option One, is to go automatically to an account without password.
    Use this tutorial BUT do the exact OPPOSITE. In other word, you are requiring password to login.
    That way, when you boot up, the system will wait for you to choose which account you want.

    *** Make sure you repeat the same procedures on BOTH accounts ***

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry, I forgot to mention I dont use passwords or any other login ID. What I want is exactly the way it works in windows 7. If you have 5 accounts, when you boot up, you arrive at the blue screen where you see 5 icons, one for each account. Click on yours and you're in. NO passwords, if you choose.

    I could be wrong.
    As far as I understand it, if no password is required for any user account, then upon restart, computer will go straight to the account LAST used before shut down.
    That's how it works in Windows 10.

    Is that how it happens to you ?

    Yes, it is. What windows 10 needs more than anything else is a check-box that says "let me do anything I choose, I'll accept the consequences." I can't count the ways in which microsoft has made things more difficult. I just found that I cant network with my other computers unless they use a user login password, is that right?

    Sorry. I can't answer the Networking question. I have no experience on that and therefore I'm Not qualified.

    I understanding is : yes, you are right, but don't hold me for that.
