Option to show Azure AD accounts on a joined Windows 10 device, instead of only the last logged on user. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently working in a Windows 10 Education (primary school) environment. In this environment most devices are shared, including the 70" touchscreens in front of the room. Teachers present credentials at the screen (powered by a NUC) to access their O365 license. Because teachers move around, every time they login to the device they have to type their account credentials again and password, unless they were the last logged in user.

    Our devices are Azure AD joined, we have no Windows DC in place.

    We are looking into an option to show any user with a local profile (eq. logged on before to the device) to be presented on the lock screen. Instead of typing the users UPN (eq. email) and password, this would allow the teachers to select themselves. We also hope users will then be able to use their PIN. It would makes the process faster and hopefully more secure.

    By the wat, when multiple user logon simultaneously, why user switching you can select any of the logged in accounts.

    Thank you in advance,

  • Hi Wim,

    There is no method to show all Azure AD accounts. Its behavior is also like joining the local Active Directory domain. When the device joined to Azure AD. it would display all local account and Other user option as below:

    Here "PeiChen" is Azure AD account that last logon user account. It only display last logon user information.

  • This would be very useful on shared computers. Perhaps an option to show up to the last n users that signed in or users that signed in within the last n days. You could have an x next to the username on the login screen so they could be removed from the list.

    Our users leave themselves signed in to keep their name on the list of available users do they do not have to enter their email address all the time. that means they never sign out which makes restarting the computer problematic and impacts performance.

  • I had the exact same problem - a shared laptop working in Azure AD, showing only the last logged-in user.

    Here is the solution: 

    Press WIN key and type gpedit.msc and go to

    Computer configuration - Administrative templates - System - Logon - Enumerate local users... 

    and enable group policy below.
