    Hello there,
    I have a problem finding the option to use fast switching in XP pro.
    I have been to the control panel, users, and there is no option there to use fast switching. I am a member of the administrators group so that should not be the problem. I have also set the service for fast switching to automatic. Still I do not have the option. Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    have you ever thought of using Windows Help.

    Start > Help & Support > type fast user switching in the search box.

    First please make sure your computer is not in a domain.

    Generally, you can enable the Fast User Switching feature with follows:

    Log on to the computer as an administrator.
    Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
    Click Change the way users log on or off.

    Check both welcome screen and fast user switching here.
