I want a way to determine which users are displayed and which aren't because some users are created to perform automated tasks and don't need to be an option. Root isn't displayed so there must be some sort of filtering, but I haven't found out where it is yet.
Edit: There are two things that I have found that might be useful to others with the same question. First, go to Control Center and open Login Screen. Unlock it and you can uncheck the box for "Show list of users." Second, if you want to exclude specific users, you can add them to the exclusion list found in: /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas (search for root)
