For PCs that are used by several people Vista offers the “Switch User” option. But this is hidden somewhere in the “power off” options of the start menu.
Here is a trick how to have a “Switch User” icon in the start menu:
- Use Windows Explorer to navigate to C:\Windows\System32\tsdiscon.exe
- Right click the file and drag it to the desktop, choose “create shortcut”
- Rename the shortcut to your liking (press F2)
- Grab the shortcut and drag it ontop of the “start” icon
Voila, you have an icon in the start menu.
