    Question Windows 7 Logon Screen

    How can I add the domain drop down list back to the logon screen for windows 7 or failing that display local and network account buttons instead of using that "Other User" button. it is a bit of a rigmoraul (?sp) having to type the domain before the username...

    I think they removed that in Vista.

    Here, I just defaulted our domain and have it not show the last user logged on... which you can do through GPO, but the exact location escapes me ATM.

    There is no way at all to get it back.

    the problem is that i use my works laptop at home and the missus is already whining at me for the fact that i have put 7 on it. when she finds out about having to type out the computer name before she can use it she is gonna have a fit!!
