When I create >10 Users on a system, xfce login manager should make it easier
to select the username.
Currently I need to select the user from a dropdown menu.
see

The option to specify the username via text field exists, but is only
accessable at the bottom of the dropdown menu. This is not very nice to use,
when there are many users available on the system (or the computer has NIS).

Most of the other login managers fall back to a textfield for username
selection, when there are too many users or make the button that shows the
textfield easier accessable.

The XFCE login manager should do this as well.
