How to logon to a domain controller locally?

  1. Switch on the computer and when you come to the Windows login screen, click on Switch User. Instead of showing icons for all the users with accounts on the PC, it now only shows two icons. The first icon is the last user who logged on and the second icon always shows “Other User”. Click Other User.

  2. After you click “Other User”, the system displays the normal login screen where it prompts for user name and password.

  3. In order to log on to a local account, enter your computer's name. If you don’t remember your computer name, please click on the link “How to log on to another domain” on your screen, and it will display your computer name.

  5. As an alternative to step 4, you can also type .\Administrator in the User name box. The dot is an alias that Windows recognizes as the local computer.
