I have a lot of users in my household (6 total + guest). Is there a way to wrap or stack the user icons rather than having them scroll off the right part of the screen?

It's not an answer, but you know you can type the name to get to the off-screen items or just have people fill in the short name and password (if any). I hope someone has a better solution than an attempt to mitigate this layout. –  bmike Mar 15 '12 at 3:00

Currently there is no way of changing the users list formatting.

The solution I use on our main computer is to simply disable the login icons and let users type their username/password.

To do so:

  • go to "System Preferences"
  • select "Users & Groups" enter image description here
  • There chose login options enter image description here
  • for the "Display Login Window as" option select "Name and Password" enter image description here
