Set Fast User Switching to not require passwords in Windows 7? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a Windows 7 machine running in a Workgroup. I'd like to set it so that when a user logs on, and stays logged on, the user does not require a password if he switches to another profile. 

    To better illustrate what I'm trying to accomplish, here's an example of how things currently are:

    1) UserA boots up the computer, types in his password and logs in.

    2) UserA hits Start > Switch User, arrives at the Welcome Screen, and logs into UserB's account after typing in a password.

    3) UserA is still logged in. UserB switches users, arrives at the Welcome Screen, and in order to log into UserA's account a password must be entered even though UserA is still logged in.

    I want to configure this workstation so that once UserA has logged in once, UserA never has to log in again. 

    Is that possible?

     

    Thanks!

  • Hi mrplaid,

    For security reason, userA cannot log in again without password.

  • That's disappointing. Thanks for the reply, though!
