You can use the other accounts on the computer by using Fast User Switching or by logging off and then logging on to another account.

To log on automatically at startup:

1. Click Start, type control userpasswords2 in the Search box, and then press Enter.

vista login

Another way you can achieve the same result is to go to Start | Control Panel | User Accounts | Advanced Options.
2. In the User Accounts dialog box, on the Users tab, uncheck Users Must Enter a User Name and Password to Use This Computer.
3. Click OK.
4. In the Automatically Log On dialog box, type the user name and password of the account that you want to log on to automatically. Once you have entered this information click OK.

From now on at power-up the system will enter your user name and password, therefore you will automatically be logged in.
