Windows 7 Enterprise lost the ability to switch users

Postby guest » Thu May 24, 2012 3:00 pm

One of our laptops runs Windows 7 in a work-group (rather then domain), and recently, it lost the ability to switch users.

I mean, the "Shut down -> Switch user" just doesn't appear there, and locking user, doesn't show the "Switch user" button.

I tried disabling/enabling the "Hide entry points for Fast User Switching", with no visible effect.

Anyone knows what this could be?

Why dont you use Windows key + L combination to switch users?

Or you can go to Command Prompt and use this command to log off/switch between users.

shutdown -L

Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon in the registry and then change the value of the AllowMultipleTSSessions key to REG_DWORD of 1 (or back to 0 to disable). Very similar to how it works in Mac OS X. If you want to script this (eg – for a login script) then you can use the reg command, for example: reg add “hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon /v AllowMultipleTSSessions /t REG_DWORD /d “1″ /f
