Certainly not a biggie.....rather a nice to have.
    It shows all users after a restart for me. If it won't for you, you may need to create a password for the accounts to prevent it from doing so after a restart.

    This is the problem I was having yesterday when I was trying to get in to my Admin account - I had 3rd party software telling my system to automatically load my default profile, I was able to load the program in Temp Profile mode and remove the auto login. Are there other ways a Windows 8 PC can set an Auto Login, I see they were using Start 8, the version I got does not have any Auto Login features.
