    XP User Switching Macro (Win XP HOme or Pro)

    I had a routine or something that allowed quick switching from one user to another. You couls make a Quick Launch button then get the User Switching screen without having to go thru the log off procedure. Can anyone help me with the macro? I think I got from Woody's but cannot find it anywhere. THANKS!!!

    Re: XP User Switching Macro (Win XP HOme or Pro)

    If you mean "fast user switching" then see below.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To turn Fast User Switching on or off
    You must have a computer administrator account to turn on or off the Use Fast User Switching feature.

    Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
    Under Pick a task, click Change the way users log on or off.
    Do one of the following:
    To specify that a user's programs remain running when another user logs on to the computer, select the Use Fast User Switching check box.
    If you select this option, programs do not shut down when another user logs on to the computer. For example, if you are typing a report and your child wants to check e-mail, you can log off using Switch User, the child can log on, check e-mail, and then log off. You can log on and return to your report without losing your place.

    To specify that programs shut down when users log off the computer, clear the Use Fast User Switching check box.
    If you select this option, programs automatically shut down when users log off the computer, and the computer will run faster for the next user who logs on.

    Important

    When Fast User Switching is turned on, Serial Keys will not work. Serial Keys is an accessibility feature that provides support so that alternative input devices (such as single switch or puff and sip devices) can be used in place of the computer's standard keyboard or mouse.
    Notes

    To open User Accounts, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click User Accounts.
    Fast User Switching cannot be turned off while multiple users are logged on to the computer.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
