Win 8.1 Switch user

3 posts in this topic

LS,

I work as a 2nd line engineer to support users. I've used autoIT before, but only via nuts and bolts that are scattered throughout the internet for autoIT.

I've started up a project to automate most of my general administrative work. Most of which are proactive as a result.

My question is:

scenario: Newly installed computer with windows 8.1

Windows 8,1 has the windows store apps that it likes to install/configure/whatever at the first time of login. Is it possible to be perform the following, while still logged in as the current user?

Switch user

log in as local admin

let win8.1 do its thing.

switch user

log in as local presentator (configured account with power options)

let win8.1 do its thing.

Just press Alt + F4 keys together. From the pop up window, select switch user from the drop-down list, you will be back to the login screen. You can then login or switch to another account.

@Bones85 why not just create a default profile for your machines, with everything you want configured ahead of time?
