|Guest||Hi, I have two standard users for my kids, so it is frustrating to boot the machine and not let me choose the account I want to log on with.|
My problem is that the tool doesn't seem to work under "Standard Accounts" even when I give the rights as Administrator, the system stills boot to them automatically.

|Guest||It works for "admin" account but not for "standard user" account. Any solution?|

|Guest||I report another problem, the program only works in a single situation:|
1) every account is an Administrator account
2) and every account is protected by password.
If one of this conditions is not satisfied, the program doesn't work.
My problem is: I have 2 synchronized Microsoft accounts, which must be protected by password.
I want to see the user list, but I want to disable the password on login (using netplwiz.exe), just like it happened in XP or 7.
I hope it might be possible... and I don't understand why Microsoft deleted this feature... :(

|Comments: 431||if you have disabled the password on login using netplwiz.exe, Windows will perform auto logon regardless of this program settings.|

|Guest||And so there is no solution... however thank you for the program|
|Sergey |27 Feb 13|
|Comments: 431||Sir, I figure out how to fix the issue.|

|Guest||Can't wait to see it! Thank you!!|

|Guest||Thank you Sergey! However, in order to work for local accounts (not synchronized with Windows Live mail) it must be used a little process: for every account must be set a password. If the user doesn't want a password, the space for it can be left blank (when setting up it on Settings). On startup the list of users is automatically shown, and clicking on the user image, the login is done immediately. I suggest to put this guide in the description of the program, because it may be not clear for some users.|
The program still doesn't work for Windows-synchronized accounts with a disabled password (with netplwiz). However I think that there is no solution for this... anyway, the program works well for every other kind of accounts, guest or administrator... so it is a very good work!

Thx for your help

|Guest||So, if I understand right, there's no way to make it work if users doesn't have a password? Because, if so, I think that I save more time switching account once I'm on start...|
|Sergey |13 Mar 13|
|Comments: 431||You understand it wrong.|
It makes the user list available if user account have no password.

|Guest||Does not work anymore since 07/04/2013. it could be because of an update. After the restart, the registry key is set to 0 when it should be 1 because of the script. On windows 8 pro x64.|

|preston|02 Jul 13|
|Guest||Stopped working for me too. There's 3 user accounts on my win8 pro x64, and it only works for one of them now.|

|Guest||just tried your user list enabler on my pc running win 8 pro 64bit and it didn't work. sorry.|
|me|12 Jul 13|
|Guest||maybe it will work again if instead of using userswitch entry this one:|
Task Scheduler Configuration:
Run whether user is logged on or not
Run with highest privileges
configure for Windows 8
note: you need to use an account with administrative privileges for the task.
at Log on (any user!)
On connection to user session (any user!)
ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI" /v LastLoggedOnUserSID /t REG_SZ /d "" /f
Untick everything you can, or at your own discretion.
