    Issue with users switching on the login screen



    /!\ Merry Christmas to all ! /!\




    My problem : Alt+F4 give me the option of switching users but only the current user "nemo" is selectable
    All users are set active including the built-in Administrator







    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    HideFastUserSwitching = 0

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
    do not exist...
    C:\Windows\system32>net users

    User accounts for \\PC-NEMO

    I do not know why "Password required" is set to No
    the result is that switching user is disabled everywhere

    I have created another user "nemo2" for test

    C:\Windows\system32>net user nemo2 /add
    The command completed successfully.

    C:\Windows\system32>net user nemo2

    I should probably delete user "nemo" to check if it is back to normal
    but I do not want to lose my profile

    PS1: by running "net user nemo /passwordreq:yes" it is now correct, but still no user switching...

    any idea ?
