windows 8.1 login issue

I have a computer running Windows 8.1 which I use for some work ( logging in to Active Directory ) and at home ( just using a local user profile ) and although this works fine, it seems a bit laborious when I start up the machine to constantly have to go to "change user" then manually type in the user details. Is there any way to tell Windows to remember atleast one password  ( or more ) login profiles rather than just the last one used?

There's no reason not to use the domain profile at home, too. Why did you use two in the first place?

" Is there any way to tell Windows to remember at least one password"
Yes but at the risk of security it is not recommended.

Create a Picture Password
or
Create a PIN

I will provide a link to a guide in my next post: "7tutorials.com/introducing-windows-8-how-switch-between-sign-options"

The login mask will never be able to show a selection of local users with domain users side by side. Simply because domain users accounts are managed on a remote server. There's no way to change that and it is advisable to use only one account. Please ask him why he thinks he needs two and I will show him that that's unneeded.
