    As a test, create a password for the account to see if it works properly then.

    Hi Brink,

    Just tried this and still no luck. Also tried changing the account from an standard to an admin account.

    I also deleted the account with no password on, setup a new one as an admin, WITH a password, and still, when that account reboots it goes back to that account on the login screen, not showing all accounts as it should.

    I must admit that I'm not sure why it's not working for you since I can't reproduce what you are experiencing. I tested OPTION ONE in Windows 8 and a Windows 8.1 Enterprise, and it still worked for them without issue.

    If I follow OPTION TWO, the lock screen stops working (not the default lock screen). Once any one the VBS is run, it does its job but makes the lock screen non working. The lock screen doesn't appear when I lock the account, the login screen is shown instead of the lock screen. The only way to get it back was a system restore. Then I had to follow option one.

    Hello Mishtu, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    When you lock the PC ( + L) after using step 2 in OPTION TWO, it will show the sign in screen first instead of your lock screen. The lock screen will show about 1 minute later if left idle though.

    Oh I see, so can't that be instantaneous? Like the way it behaves by default? (Lock screen is immediately displayed upon pressing + L)

    OK, no problem Brink, I follow the option 1 and it behaves the way I want

    Thanks for the tutorial btw.

    BTW, this auto sign-in feature is way too irritating :/
    And there's that Default lock screen that we can't customise (had to follow your tut). M$ is too stupid! :/

    Does this work in combination with having user accounts set to log on automatically? I'd like to have the login screen presented at start up with all user accounts shown, then select any of them to log on without entering a password. Thanks.
