This is something that we use every day. It is a short little trick to login with a local user account instead of a domain account. By default, when a username is entered into a domain joined machine, and there is also a local account with the same name, the domain account will take precedence. We keep coming across people that don’t know this little trick, so we thought it would be worthwhile sharing.
Login with Local Account
In the username field, simply enter .\ and the domain below will disappear and switch to your local computer name.
Then simply finish filling out your username after the .\ and it will use the local account with that username.
You can also type the computer name followed by a backslash and the username and it will accomplish the same thing.
