Why is the latest windows 111 release hiding switch user/ the user list now?

Use my work account all the time

Have a local user for an SMB share

Logged off for the first time ever for a configuration change

Presented with the logon screen defaulting with that local user/ account locked

No ability to switch users, log on as other user and the user list is missing.

How was this disabled, why was it disabled when I have multiple users on AzureAD

I can't log into my computer.

I might be done with windows forever.

    Based on your description, you can try to log in to open the command prompt as an administrator on Win 11 and enter the "net user [user name] /active: yes" to activate the banned account.
