    I have many users on my PC.
    I wanted to know if I could have a command line login.

    Like you would type:

    Login ABCUser

    And then be prompted to enter a password?

    I've never seen this before.
    Just wondering.

    Thanks.

    What's wrong in doing an logout and then using the Welcome Screen and selecting the wanted account?

    Let's say you have 50 accounts. :)
    Easier for you to login by typing a username.

    Why would any single machine have 50 accounts?

    well currently i have 12 accounts.
    the screen has run out of space.
    i now have an annoying column that i have to scroll down.
    i guess there is no way to get what i want? :(
    i didn't think it was a strange request.

    Oooh... very nice.
    I will give it a go.

    I couldn't remember where I saw it... I was thinking maybe it was Linux... when setting up a user, you could have it where the user needed to type the username in before being able to login.

    Thanks!
