How do I hot key between authenticated sessions in Windows 8.1?

This should be simple, but How do I hot key between authenticated sessions in Windows 8.1?  The PC is in a local domain.  I sign in with my domain account, work a bit, but then I need to get into my account.  I sign in. Now I need to hot key back into my first session. It takes several clicks to select the other session and then I have to enter my password all over again.  This takes too long.  Once I have authenticated to both sessions I should be able to switch users quickly without having to supply a password again.

I could take the passwords off, but that is not very healthy.

The re-authentication is there for security purposes, and your domain re-logon is applied via Group Policy so there is no way to get around that. You can however setup a Logon PIN or Picture Password to speed up the logon process (unless your domain administrators specifically block them).

You can link your account to your domain account, so you don't have to switch back and forth in the first place.

Connect your Microsoft account to your domain account -

Thanks, Brad.  I don't want to link the two accounts because one account is super private, the other is accessible to me secretary.   I will try the Logon PIN or Picture Password to speed up the logon process (
