I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard. Under XP, the "key" key brings up the option to switch user.

Under Windows 7 Home, the same key automatically logs me out. I've installed the drivers for Win7, and there's no option for switch user.

Note that this is on exactly the same hardware - dual boot Win7 and XP.

Is there any way to get this key (or any of the other keys, actually) to allow me to switch user?


The switch user option may not appear if there is not another configured user account. Or if all the other user accounts are disabled.


Win key + L brings up the switch user screen. (It locks the desktop but allows you to switch user)
