Description
When having multiple users, it is sometimes useful to be able to quickly switch between the users. In Windows 8, this is possible via the Start screen by directly clicking another user you want to logon. Windows Server 2012 however always requires users to go back to the login screen and select another user there. Images of both OS's attached.

if you install the Classic Start Menu, you see the option for Switch User… this work well.

I too intuitively use the old way "Switch User", but it's good to know how to do this without the Start menu. There're other ways to do this:

1. From User Details in the Start Screen as Arris demonstrated
2. From the Task Manager > Users Tab
3. From the Ctr-Alt-Del menu
4. While on the desktop hit Alt+F4 and there appears shutdown prompt with the options

Realize this is an old thread, but stumbled upon this via Google... does anyone happen to know if its possible to enable the same Windows 8 Switch account functionality in Win2012?

Thanks!
