    Account display order on login screen


    Hey All,

    Small question about the login screen. I have several user accounts setup on my Windows 8 PC and I would like to change the order in which they are displayed on screen. Does anyone know if this is possible or are they just listed in the order they are created in?

    Thanks,

    Ben.

    Hello Ben, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The accounts on the sign in screen are listed in alphabetical order of the user account's display name from left to right.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Brink,

    Thanks for the welcome and quick response. Why didn't I think of that! Thank you - yes, a tweak of the user name and I can now see it's displayed in alphabetical order. #complete8newbie

    Thanks again.

    Ben.
