Hello,

I would like to change the order of the user icons at the welcome screen.
Is there only the way using different names to bring them in the order I
need?

Hi Christian,

There is no way of changing the order that the User icons are displayed on
the Welcome Screen other than by renaming them. They are displayed in
alphabetical order.

Thanks for your Reply.
The usernames are fix and I would not change them. But I found out, that I
can use the full name property of the user account, because Vista shows that
name at the welcome screen.

So "sauron" is still the logon username of the account but ".sauron" is the
full name. Now it is the first account and in front of the Administrator
account.

Not the best way, but it works. That's what I've been thinking about a lot
of thinks after I switched from XP to Vista. :)
