I am trying to setup a computer to be shared between my 2 daughters who are just turning 5. I want to let them each have their own account, and I want to make it easy for them to switch between them. My idea was to have an 'always on top' set of icons on the left side of the screen that they could click on to switch to their user account. Any ideas?
I use Direct User Switching Task to switch between domain accounts. You can use either the system tray icon or a keyboard shortcut to switch between accounts in a similar way to switching between apps with ALT+TAB.
This may be a bit too fiddly for five year olds, but I thought I would mention it for the benefit of other readers. It would also be quite trivial to automate its use using AutoIt.
It's not free, but worth getting if you switch between accounts a lot.
