    Hey guys,

    Something really simple I'm sure. I've just reformatted and setup an iMac for my parents. With the existing Admin account I created another one with Admin priveleges. So my mum had one and my dad. However when I turn on the iMac it doesn't display a logi screen so that my mum or dad can select which account they want to use and enter their password. It automatically loads into the first main admin user account.

    The only way to switch to the other one is to click the apple at the top left and select log off.

    Question: How can I get the login screen upon startup so my parents can select their own account?

    Thanks
