    Hello Baiter, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Usually, you could click on the back arrow button at the top right to then see the other users on the sign in screen.

    If you like, you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to always see all users 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

    Do you have any other accounts on the computer than your Microsoft account?
