Description:

Follow these steps to have Windows show all available users at the login screen instead of the previous user who was logged on.

To Resolve:

  1. Open Regedit and go to:
    HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\UserSwitch
    Change: Enabled to 1

  2. Problem with this is the user SYSTEM automatically changes the value to 0, so we need to block it:

2a. Now right click on UserSwitch key itself and click on Advanced – Disable Inheritence – Convert inherited permissions into explicit ones for this object.

2b. Now, change the “Owner” at the top to Administrators.

2c. Now go to permissions and set Administrators – Allow – Full Control

2d. In the same box, select System – Show Advanced Permissions and check all DENY’s except “Check Value”
