Fast User Switching Compatibility

5 June 2003 by Snakefoot | Comment » | Trackback Off
Description:
Allows several users to be simultaneously logged locally on the same machine, and then switch between each of these user's sessions.
The service is only started when a second user logs on to the machine.

To configure Fast User Switching go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> "Change the way users log on or off".

Note Fast User Switching is only available when in a workgroup (Not when part of a domain), and it requires that Welcome Screen and Terminal Services are enabled.

Note the Fast User Switching can consume a lot of memory and CPU power, if one switches between users without closing down the open applications. Making the computer slow to work with.
