    Thought I'd share this info which makes life a bit easier when you have to constantly switch computer user accounts, especially for lazy computer users like myself. To switch computer accounts (recommended to get to your other eBay accounts) you would normally have to press START >> LOG OFF >> SWITCH USER. OMG 3 mouse clicks that's too much! So I made a shortcut on the desktop and quicklaunch. Right click on any blank space on your desktop, select NEW >> SHORTCUT >> paste this rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation >> rename to your liking >> FINISH. Now put that shortcut to quicklaunch or wherever you want. Now you have simple super fast account switching with 1 click! Or if you really want to get speedy you can add a keyboard shortcut. Right click on the shortcut you just made >> PROPERTIES >> then add a shortcut key be it CTRL + ALT + [whatever]. You need to create this shortcut for each user account you have but once it's setup then it's good to go with all your accounts.

    You still need to double click the shortcut meaning you click twice. So you only save yourself one click and maybe a bit of hassle, depending on where you place the shortcut.

    This only logged me out of my user account and locked the session. I thought that it would automatically log me into another user account, maybe i did it wrong

    True. But if you're dopey you might click it by accident when doing other things and then the sky will fall on you. :eek:
