Re: How to display all user accounts on desktop?
thanks JoeT. and Sorry for causing confussion. What I is trying to acchive
is to have all my users accounts displayed on a Vista's logon screen. But
most of time, it displays previous user account, and one "Other User".
In some of testing machines, they display all user accounts (eight of them)
on the log on screen. I just need to find a way to make it happens on my
other testing machines.
