Getting the username password logon panel

In system preferences under account, login option, there are three choices regarding the way Mac OS X displays the logon panel to the user at the end of the startup process.

- Automatic logon as
- Users list
- Name and password

Generally the User list is the preferred picking because of the picture.
There are a sequence of keys that can momentarily change this behaviour from User list to Name and password.

Press the 'esc' key. The password box disappears.

Press the first letter of a user name in the list. The foreground around the picture and the name become darker.

Press alt(option)+shift+enter(return)

and in a matter of a second the panel changes its appearance, asking you to type in the user name and your password.
