Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

At a fresh login screen there is no cursor and hitting tab, the arrows, or mashing the keyboard doesn't make one appear.

Is there a way to bring the cursor to the Name field without using the mouse?

Not sure about the exact answer, but here's an alternative. Change the login screen to show user icons. You can then press the first letter of a user's name to select the user, and then type in the password, all without using the mouse. –  jimtut Apr 8 '14 at 17:52
