New Login Procedure for Windows 7 Podium Computers

Over the summer, the computers installed in classroom podiums across campus were upgraded to Windows 7 which caused a change in the way users login to the system. By default, Windows 7 will “remember” the previous user of the system and prompt for his or her password. A new user attempting to login will need to switch to his or her account in order to be prompted to enter the appropriate password.

To login to a Windows 7 podium computer with your account, do the following:

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete
  2. Click the Switch User button displayed below the current user’s name.
  3. Click the Other User button.
  4. Enter your standard SJU username and password into the appropriate fields.
  5. Click the arrow button next to your password to complete the login process.

If you encounter any difficulties logging in, you can contact the IT Help Desk at x2920 and someone will be able to assist.
