Scheduled task is working on all users, the reg value switch from 0 to 1 at startup for all users but on startup screen, only last user logged appear.

I am just a regular user who ends up having to try and play deskside support, so there may well be things I am making more diffiucult than they need to be. Things I did notice- 1. Assuming that the ids were created using their email addresses, I had them enter that and followed prompts from there.
This userswitch was working for me until update. Now the reg values are correct, but some users without passwords are automatically logged in on start up.
I logged into my work computer cortana usuing my personal Microsoft account, which apparently created a new user profile also started displaying my beach vacation photos as the background so I deleted the user profile and restarted the computer now the only option to logon is usuing the same user profile I just deleted my personal but now asking for a password that I did not create nor is my existing Microsoft personal password.
None of the the above worked for me. I have searched high and low on the web for a solution to get multiple users to show on login screen in Windows The best I could do is a workaround based on info on a Tenforum thread. I provide this in case it helps someone else. It is not elegant, but suffices until a real solution comes along. My thanks to Shawn Brink. Create new user [Admin] with password 1. Click OK 7.
Click OK [leave password boxes blank] 8. It helped me, i was looking for this login solution everywhere and only this one worked finally. I am so happy that i am connecred ro right peopke and solutions and so is my laptop.

How to Switch User Accounts on Windows 10
Like the topic stands, my Windows 10 login screen doesn’t show the option to type in username and password instead of just choosing the username I want to log on to. I was able to enable the other user login but by doing so I can only log in through the other user prompt without a list of existing accounts. I did it by enabling “Interactive logon: Don’t display last signed-in” in the group policy. However it is not exactly what I am trying to achieve.
I have seen Windows 10 devices where the user was able to login through selecting a user from a list and providing a password. On this devices in the list of known users there was the “other user” option which is missing on my PC. This devices probably where part of a domain which possibly enables the “other user” option but I am interested in achieving the same thing without a domain. Is this possible? To put it my issue in simple words to summarise, I want a login screen where I have the usual list of available users along with the other user option.
