Hi everyone. I'm trying to find a way to switch between Windows user accounts using just Dragon. Is there anyway to do this?

 

My efforts are being hampered by the Windows log-in screen. I can use Windows Hello to log-in to one of the user profiles, but, because Windows will not let you use the same face to log-in to multiple accounts, the other account needs a password or pass code to be entered. Because I am a completely hands-free user, this is problematic.

 

This issue may be unsolvable, but if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it!

1 of the points of Windows login screen is security. It is not possible to create a command that could switch Windows logins

You might be able to use a YubiKey USB hardware key to login for the second account. Maybe Windows is smart enough to recognize the key and automatically log you in under that account. Disclaimer - I have never used a YubiKey. But it acts like a fingerprint of sorts, so it might be able to log you in.
