A Fast Way to Switch Users in Windows® 7
If you use Windows 7 and have created multiple profiles on your computer, there is an easy and quick way to switch user accounts. With Fast User Switch, a free to download utility, you can change users with just one click. On a Windows 7-based PC, you would normally be required to first click ‘Start’, then click the arrow button next to ‘Shut Down’ and then select the ‘Switch User’ option. Also, there is no keyboard shortcut for performing these steps at one go.
After installing Fast User Switch, if you run it, you would be straightaway taken to the user selection screen. You can also pin the program to the taskbar so that with just a click, you can switch the user account.
When the first time you run Fast User Switch, you would be asked whether it’s okay to run the program. Click ‘Ok’ after clearing the checkbox next to “Ask me about this every time”. The message will not be shown again. Fast User Switch can be downloaded for free from here.
