Specs: Windows 7
My wife and I use the same computer at home. Is there a more efficient way for us to "change User" each time, instead of having to ckick on the microsoft ball, ckick change user, and enter our passwords? Perhaps hitting a specific two keys would change users? Just an annoaying step we have to go through. Thanks for your responses.

You can't bypass the log-in screen, but pressing the <Windows key + L> will involve less mouse-clicks to get there.

Thank you. On our old windows, we could just hit two keys and change to another user. Still trying to figure out this Wondows 7.

There's also the tsdiscon shortcut method.

I confess to my wife and I being neophyte computer users. I Googled the terminology TSDISCON and came up with Terminal Service Disconnect. Unfortunately, all references to using this disconnect were for older Windows programs. I have no idea of Windows 7 has such a disconnect, or how to access it. Better still, what do I do IF I find it?? Being retired, and remembering that as children, we used to "talk with one another using two paper cups and a string", will tell you the level of our expertise. Maybe we should just use the switch user "pain in the neck" process we were using before I mess up the computer by deleting or pushing a wrong button on something I don't understand. Appreciate your expertise, though, and thank you for your courtesy.

Gandydancer,

I just took a glance at your system details & it looks like the tsdiscon executable shortcut user switch method will not work for you after all, since you've got Windows 7 Home Premium :-(

I thought you might try the Launch Control gadget, but I think what you specifically need to use, instead, is this nifty executable for your shortcut & thank the literally Smart dude who compiled it.

Good luck!
