    I only have one user. That would be me. I don't think what you want is possible. Unless you want all the other users to have access to your desktop at start. I think you have to log on or use the default desktop.

    Happy New Year to you too.
    I have been creating Identities since I laast responded and I don't know where your list went. I clicked cancel and still had the sign in list.

    I don't want to advise you and make a mess. I hope someone who uses Identities comes along to give you a hand.
