    Username on screen all the time?

    I have concerns that the odd pupils are logging in as someone else. Without grabbing hold of their mouse and clicking on the start button I can't see who they are logged in as when wandering around a classroom. Does anyone know of any software that just sits on the taskbar and displays the username of the person who is logged in? Might be a bit of a deterrant. I'm sure I remember something for windows 3.11..... (showing my age now!)

    Thanks for the tip and I think i'm going to be adding this to our servers. Very useful! But with opening an application this background would then disappear unless i've missed something.

    I wrote one of these years ago for RM Connect, they also did one for cc3 I think that sits in the system tray.

    we use something called icontool that does the same..sits in the taskbar with the user name as a title on it, unkillable, maximises into a shortcut bar. Needs a username set by variable though, which ours do automatically.

    God knows where it came from..we had it under NT4 originally.
