Logon different network user

    Question

  • To logon as a different network-user than the previous one, Windows 7 offers the option 'Different user' next to 'Username'.
    When clicking on the 'Different user' button, again you have to click the button 'Different user'.

    Is there a way to skip one of these steps?
    I don't see a reason why anyone should have to make the same choice twice.

    Regards,

  • Actually, when you need logon as a different user, you need click "Switch User" and click "Other User". Then, type the different user name and password, and press Enter to login. The startup procedure is by default and they are not the same choice.

  • Thank you for your answers,
    I am using the Dutch version of Windows. "Switch User" and "Other User" are both translated as 'Different user'.
    I would like to skip one of these steps for my users.
    Is it really not possible to have the second screen (Other user) as default logon screen?

  • This is by design and I'm afraid that you cannot skip one.
