How to change order of users on Windows logon screen

Q: How to change order of users on Windows logon screen

I have three users (all with local accounts) on my PC and some time ago I disabled the auto-login using the process described here:
Solved Help with multiple users login screen!

This worked perfectly as the users appeared in alphabetical order as follows:
UserA (with the user picture in the centre of the screen)
UserB
UserC

Recently, the order has changed to (I don't know why!):
UserB (with the user picture in the centre of the screen)
UserA
UserC

I would like to change the order back to how it was originally, as UserA is the primary user of this computer. UserA currently has to click on 'UserA' and then 'Sign In' rather than just 'Sign In'

Note: UserB is the only account that is password protected.

Does anyone have any ideas how to do this?

Many thanks

Preferred Solution: How to change order of users on Windows logon screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. During the procedure a screen showed that Dell Access had to be removed before Windows 10 could be installed.
It was removed, and everything else went smoothly.
Now during logon, at the login screen, the system will take a while to initialize, and say "Failure to initialize". Luckily I am able to login using a password.
I want to use the fingerprint reader to login. Dell says that this system have no issues with upgrading to Windows 10, but not now. So how can I solve this problem?
I will like to do either the following:
1. Get the fingerprint reader working.
2. If it cannot work, I want the logon screen to stop trying to initialize and just use password to logon.

Also, I am getting 2-3 nos of the same user on the login screen. There is only 1 user on this computer but I see mostly 2 but sometimes 3 of the same on the lower left of the logon screen. I also want to remove the extras. Not an issue, but I think it may be related to the above as well.

Thanks.

Hello,
I want to change the logon screen in Windows 7 to the Windows 98 style (picture attached)
Are there any sites I can either download a theme like this or a site that I can make one like it on or software to make a custom theme like the windows 98 logon screen?

A:How can I change the Windows 7 logon screen to a very different look?

Hello emerald,

I am not sure if you can get that actual dialogue box or not, there are tons of programs that claim to change the logon but usually its just changing background pictures and what-not. You can experiment with some of them and see if you can get that specific one. Just be careful downloading them and make sure you google each one to make sure its legit before trying it.

However, I can get you close. You have Win7 Professional so thats a plus. Please type "gpedit.msc" in your Search (in Start) and then follow the first set of instructions here:
Change the logon screen - Microsoft Community

Next, if you want to change the background to that color, follow this:
Log On Screen - Change

Just substitute the picture added in the tutorial with a solid background or any image you wish.

Hope this helps!

This is a "cry wolf" situation that isn't causing me any problem except when it did.

Running Windows 7 64-bit.

I run a, to me, complicated set up where, in addition to my "C" drive, I have three other large internal drives. Except that they're in external enclosures. I'm on a cable connection but also have a Kindle Fire so I set up a local wi-fi so I could access the 'net around my house even when I'm away from my computer. So, for security reasons, I like to shut down as far as possible when I finish here for the day so, for security reasons, I turn off all of those internal drives in enclosures because that's where my sensitive material and most of my data is; I have to leave a small windows presence loaded to run the wi-fi card and the program I use to create my local network, Connectify. What has worked well is to log off myself and the next day I have a logon screen ready to log back on as myself. I don't know why Connectify and my card keep working but apparently Windows' bare bones keeps those things running which suits me well.

As I say this has worked well except that in the past week my logon screen has a different little box in the lower right corner. It's the standard button for quitting, rebooting and the like if one has changed one's mind. But in the middle is a small shield with an exclamation point.

There must be, but it either involves knowing a programmer/hacker that crafted a program for you, or doing some intense studying of Window's inner workings and twiddling knobs here and there, heh.

Could that information you used to change the picture be used to guide you in a somewhat correct direction regarding the window position? Beware things can probably be ruined horribly if you twiddle with knobs of unknown origin . . .

Hi all, hope you can help me

A family member bought an E Machines E529 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium pre installed. The laptop was bought off the shelf at a discounted rate so doesn't come with any CD/DVDs.

They gave us the user name and password, I logged on fine to the administrator account and then changed the name and password no problem, there was another user account called 'Kiosk' but I didn't bother deleting this or make any changes. However when I turned the laptop off and back on the log on screen only gives me the 'Kiosk' user account and other users, tried other user, entered the name and password but it cannot find any of the accounts (old or new) and now I cant log onto the computer any more. I downloaded an ISO image and tried to boot it from DVD which would apparently let me view all the accounts and change passwords but it doesn't seem to work for me.

Is there any other way around it or would it work if I bought W7 and would I be able to boot the computer and set up new accounts that way?

Hi All.

I installed the Release Preview for Win 8 (x64) on one of our family computers today. I had been using it on my laptop for a bit, and decided to see what everyone else thought. My question is this: Is there any way to set the logon screen to display the user profiles to choose from rather than defaulting to the last user who was logged in?

I've tried in gpedit to set the policy to not remember the last user, but then each user has to type in their logon credentials. Any way to set it so that it shows the 4 accounts that are activated, rather than each user having to hit the back button to get back to the account select screen?

How can I change Useraccount order on login screen in windows 7? 
Any help (preferably without messing around with stuff like registry keys)?

thanks in advance!

A:Change User-account order on login screen

Hi,It seems no option for that. Even gpedit.msc only provide the option to change " Apply the default user logon picture to all users" under Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, and User Accounts.Logon screen shows the user accounts in alphabetical order based on the names first given to the account when it is created. If you change the user account name later, it does no longer change the order accounts are presented. Reason is simple: even if you change the user account name later, the user account folder keeps the original name. Renaming the user subfolders in C:\Users does not change the situation.What all this means is that you have to think the logon screen account order already when creating accounts.

Hi all,

I'm specifically looking for a way to change the logon screen Windows logo from its (personally) ugly appearence to white (both examples attached), I'd rather not remove the logo because I have it in my head that a plain white logo would match the "Windows 7 Home Premium/Ultimate/etc" text at the bottom of the screen.

I have opened authui.dll in notepad although I'm not too sure if it is possible to edit this .dll with notepad. I really do not want to use a resource hacker program to do it. I mean, I'm quite happy going into the registry to activate my own logon background and as happy editing a picture to fit nicely to my resolution! Hell, I go into the registry to do what most merge a downloaded .reg file to do! I am perfectly happy customizing Windows manually as I believe its a perfect way of being able to undo any problems that occur.

Excuse the length of this post and an apparent rant, I really am hoping that there is an "offline" method of customizing the logon logo!


EDIT: I don't mean the Boot animation. I just realized it may seem so by the attached images!

2.) Search through the registry and find the following key:

Change the value of OEMBackground to “1” in the input field to the right of the key name.
3.)Click the “Start” button again and type “%windir%\system32\oobe” without the quotes into the Search box. Press “Enter.” Copy the image that you want to use for your new logon screen here. Right-click, make a new folder and name it “info”. Make a subfolder under this and name it “backgrounds”. Place your new background image here and rename the file to "backgroundDefault.jpg".
4.) Reboot your computer. Your custom Windows 7 logon screen should appear.

Hi,

Just want to know how to change the logon screen font to another one installed on my computer.

Did a search on the internet with no info.

Do I have to modify a registry or something?

Can anyone help me?

Not the registry. You have to modify protected Windows file (MUI in this case).

Hello

I use the 'Welcome to Windows' (Ctrl-Alt-Delete) and the 'Log on to Windows' screen to login in XP (so not the default, but the w2k-like GUI).
These screens are located in the middle of the desktop.

Can anyone tell me if I can change the coordinates of both these screen, probably somewhere inthe registry. But where ???

Does anyone have a clue.

Thanks.
