    Hi,

    Is there any way to automate Fast User Switching on Windows XP?

    Say, there are 2 users, user1 and user2. How can I automate the switching procedure to user2?

    Thanks,
    Haku

    I'm not quite sure what you mean here... do you want to create a shortcut that will automatically switch over to user2 when you click it or what?

    Although I have it disabled, I was under the impression that fast user switching was already pretty automated; just 2 or 3 clicks right?

    I would like the automated FUS programmatically. So, for example, there are 2 users, user1 and user2. Under the User Account control panel, Welcome screen and FUS are enabled. When user one run 'the program', windows supposed to do the user switching. So user1 is still logon, while user2 login. I cannot do this with GUI interaction (programmatically) because I found out that, if I run a program that simulate mouse action on user1, the program only works until the welcome screen shows up. After that, the program loses control. So, my question will be whether there is a call that can do this or, how to gain control during the welcome screen, so I can simulate my mouse movement.

    Thanks
    Haku
