    How to Enable last user logged on and other user?


    Hi,
    I was wondering how I could enable it so on my logon screen the last user logged on shows and for example my brother would have to press other user and type in his username and password
    Many thanks,
    Ethan

    Download, install, and use Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2 or 3 from Windows Club. Find and checkmark the desired option...something about showing the last user. Warning, concerning UWT 2 or 3, quick choices can have long consequences! Wrong choices can cause a wedgie on the computer so tight that hardware falls off. Explore all you want, tread and change carefully and sparingly.

    Hello Ethan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    There's no need to go to another site, or install and use 3rd party software for what you want.

    You can use either option in the tutorial below to require users to sign in with both user name and password.

    I don't think you can have it show the last user and other user. It's usually either or.

    However, you might see if this below may help as workaround to display information about previous logons.

    The example screenshots at the top of the tutorial is what you will see at sign-in if enabled.

    Brink, thanks for the heads-up! I'll try to remember there are almost always Windows alternatives to 3rd party utilities.

    No problem Roland. I'm just not a big fan of those all-in-one tweaking type utility programs.
