Hi!
I have a computer using XP OS, two user accounts (e.g. A and B) (without any
passwords) and I use the Welcome screen.
Is there a way that when I start the computer, to make it wait on the
Welcome screen for a small time (10-20 sec), and afterwards to automatically
log to user A ?

Thanx !

Probably not but there may be other work-arounds.

No but....

You could use Start> Run> control userpasswords2 to set up automatic logon
for one user. Starting the computer would boot right to the selected user's
desktop without stopping.

When the other user wants to logon, they would start the computer (or
restart it) and press/hold shift. This forces the welcome screen to appear
where they can log on with their own account.
