Windows 7 home won't show all login users at start up

I have a brand-new windows seven home laptop I set up with two users both set as administrators. When the computer turns on at the login screen it only shows one users name and "other user". So to login as the second user you have to select other user and know/enter username and password.  Anyway to have all users listed at the login screen?  This computer is not part of a domain.

Is one of the users "administrator" (like days of old). This is supposed to be disabled and not used. That may be one possible reason.  ... Thinkpads_User

Nope both of them are separate users with administrator rights.

What happens when you log off (not shut down). Do you see both names?  I have my machine set not to display names, but I have seen other Windows 7 machines with names displayed. Let us know what happens when you log off. ... Thinkpads_User

When you log off it only shows the user you just logged off as and another one that says user.so if I login as the other user then log off itll say that users name and a blank user that requires a username and password. I've seen a lot of posts on the web for this issue.

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

I believe the default profile has been copied/replaced or played with erroneously before the "other user" was created and therefore the conflict.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
