Credential Provider and last username display RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are testing a credential provider for self-service password reset from a third party.  A problem we are having is that the credential provider package installs a new "Windows tile" to perform the password reset from the Windows login screen.  The only other tile available to an end-user is "Other User."

    Essentially, the only tiles we can see with this credential provider installed is the new credential provider tile and other user.  Is anyone aware of anyway that we can have a credential provider installed and still show the tile with the last logged on username? This issue mainly concerns Windows 7.

    We are under the impression that the last logged on username cannot be displayed when a credential provider is installed.

    Any information on this is appreciated.

  • Hi wf88,

    Based on your description, I understand that you want to show the account icon or name for last login user.

    For 3<sup>rd</sup> part credential provider, first of all, we may need check the group policy of “Display last login user”, see if it has been enabled by mistake.

    Then, check if we could fix this issue by manually change the credential provider in registry key:
