On some of our computers that use a generic logon have group policies set to auto-logon the computer when rebooted. But sometimes need to log in with my admin account to update stuff. On Windows 7 and earlier computers, I could hit the left-shift key during the boot, in order for the ctrl+alt+del screen to log in with my account. But how do you do that on Windows 10? Hitting the left-shift key doesn't do anything. Is there a different keystroke on Windows 10?

The only thing that I've been able to find is that with Windows 7 x64 and above, apparently wasn't an issue with x32 bit versions of Windows, and USB keyboards that there were issues with stopping the autologon process. Microsoft released two hotfixes for the issue. Haven't tried either of the hotfixes because not sure if it would affect anything else on our systems and Microsoft has their disclaimer about only using the hotfixes for the issue in the KB article:
