Is there a way to "emulate" the fast user switching behaviour of Mac OS on Windows?
I'm already aware of the WIN+L shortcut, but is there a way to have Windows list the users and allowing one to switch to a user by simply clicking its icon?
It already does, on my computer. I can't take screenshots when at the login screen, otherwise I'd show you. I have three accounts - ZoFreX, Bob, and the guest account. If I lock the screen (Win+L) there is a button "Switch users" beneath the login prompt. If I click this, I see a list of the users on the system, and I can log in as them just by clicking (and typing in the password, if they have one). I can get directly to this screen by selecting "switch users" from the shutdown widget on the start menu.
If you'd like the XP-style behavior back, where
Log into the account that needs this behavior, open Task Scheduler and create a new task. Make sure that
AFAIK, because of the security boundaries between user accounts and sessions, the above is the only way to make this such that it works, and you have to create the task on every user account where you want this behavior to occur. I don't think it's possible to create a single system-wide task for all users.
