Description (last modified by damato)

Thought I had suggested this before, but as I cannot find it...

I'd love it, if there was a feature, where I could set a default user, which is used (silently) when I start YAM. By request (ie. holding a qualifier) on startup, there could be the normal user-selection-window.
The reason for this, I am almost the only one to use YAM here. Theoretically my Girlfind does have an account, too. But she uses it almost never.
Now I have to select my account every time I start YAM. It would be nice if YAM just "logged me in" and for the very rare case where she really needs it, she'd press the quallifier and the window would pop up where she could select here account on startup.

Could this dream come true - one day? 8-)

After discussion with the other developers and rethinking of that matter we have to reject your ticket. The possibility you are requesting here is already possible with YAM. The only thing you need to do is to create two separate startup icons for YAM (e.g. on your desktop) and in one of the startup icons you specify "USER=name" in addition to a "PASSWORD=pw" tooltype entry if this user has a password. Then your second user can simply doubleclick that icon and YAM will startup immediately with that user. In addition, you can also use "USER=name" on a command-line based startup of YAM.
