    Help changing the login style for windows 8.1


    I have 3 user accounts set op on my computer that i use for different things. When i turn on the computer it comes to the lock screen and then i have to unlock it and then i have to click back before i am taken to the 3 accounts. I want to have it start up and i want there to be no lock screen or default account. I just want it to come to the 3 accounts so i can click on one.

    I think that this will happen if you shutdown your computer and then start that u will get 3 accounts to choose from. Shutdown is compulsory.
    If you just sleep or lock the machine, it will by default open up the account of last account you were using. This is what i think.

    Hello Carp,

    If you like, you can use the tutorial below to disable the lock screen to no longer see it.

    Lock Screen - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    Next, you can use Option One in the tutorial below to always have all users show on the Sign in screen instead of the last user.

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

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    i tried it and it worked at first, but then i enabled the control alt delete sign in and now it just dhows the last user. I changed the default lock screen so what i want to do is when i turn it on, i see the default lock screen image and then i press control alt delete and then i can select the user and then i enter the password. Now, when i turn it on i see the last users lock screen image and the control alt delete sign on works, but after that i am taken to the last user to enter my password.

    Yep, CTRL+ALT+DEL secure sign in will cause that.
