Windows 10: Changing user at startup

    Changing user at startup


    I attempted to login as Administrator unsuccessfully. I did a hard reboot but no am automatically logged as Administrator, unsuccessfully, of course.

    If I see alternate users, it flashes quickly.

    How can return to my normal user login?

    Welcome to TenForums @adam1951

    Windows automatically tries to log you in at boot as the last user that was signed in. If that user has a password it stops at the password prompt where you'd have a chance to choose another user to sign in as. If (like Administrator) it has no password it goes straight in.

    All you have to do is sign out from Administrator. Then you can sign back in using another account. That will then become the account that Windows will offer for you to sign in to at next boot.

    Sign out of Windows 10

    But the Administrator login never completes
