    Morning all,

    Can anyone please tell me whether Windows 7 supports Fast User Switching in a domain environment? Quick google search wasnt conclusive, so hoping that our Win7 users may be able to help?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I'd be very surprised if it did.

    But wouldn't that be down to the server technology rather than the client OS?

    I was going to reply something similar to Jonny but then I decided to give it a bash and was surprised by the outcome.

    Windows 7 on a 2003 Domain

    Start->Switch User->Login as Administrator(Allowed me to login without logging user Thomas off)

    When I clicked "Switch User" again it took me back to the login screen showing that Thomas and Administrator where still logged in

    My first thought was no as you can't in XP...... wonder why/when they changed it.
