    Hello, I've setup two accounts on a new windows install.
    Neither of them have a password at customers request.
    When I boot up, it just automatically goes into the one account.
    How do I tell Windows to give me a choice to which account to log into when booting up.
    Like in all previous versions of windows. If I had multiple accounts, even with no passwords, at boot up I still got a choice to which account to log into.
