    Switch User Problem.

    Everytime I switch users it automatically logs in to my brothers user name which is very frustrating, any way to change it?

    Hello adz3d,

    One method that would stop this would be to create a password for your brother's account. Afterwards, it will no longer auto sign-in to the account. This would be the recommended method.

    Another method is to use step 1 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to always have all users displayed on the sign-in screen to prevent this. However, if you click on your brother's icon, it will still sign into it without having to enter a password since it's not password protected as recommended above.

    Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
