Windows 7 Welcome Screen Display Other User

When connected to a domain the Windows 7 welcome screen displays the last logged in user and Other User which allows you type a username and password.

I want the same functionality on a machine not connected to a domain. You are unable to Ctrl Alt Del to get a classic login prompt (unlike XP) so the Other User option is the only option which suits our situation.

I have tried modifying the local security policy to hide the last logged in user which reverts to a classic login screen which would be fine but only if it defaulted the username.

I believe Windows Vista has the same functionality.

Open "Run", and enter "control userpasswords2". Now you should have a different user-account control panel than what you normally see. Click the "Advanced" tab and here enable the "Secure logon" (Require users to press "Ctrl+Alt+Del".
