They are essentially the same thing – differences in terminology. In case one creates multiple user accounts in Windows 10, users will see a list of users to choose from and asked for credentials in any number of ways – passwords, pin, picture password, fingerprint, iris scan and so on.

Subject: Windows 10 "Sign-in" versus Windows 7 "Logon" Screens
I am new to Windows 10. I am using it under JAWS 2019. In Windows 7, there was a “logon” screen that listed the various user accounts. In Windows 10, there seems to be a “sign-in” screen. Right now, there is just one user for this sign-in screen - me. So, what is the difference between the “sign-in” versus the “logon” screens? What happens in Windows 10 when I add a couple of additional user accounts? How does this “sign-in” screen change? With JAWS, what is the best way to setup Windows 10 to handle logging-in? For example, can (or should) I disable the “sign-in” screen and instead use a “logon” screen?
