Description: Edit

Many times, network administrators will have to modify Windows Logon screens and behaviors. In a domain environment, try to choose "gpedit.msc" (Group Policy Editor) over "secpol.msc" (Local Security Policy) because gpedit is a Local Group Policy Editor with the top-level Local Group Policy object open for editing. Note: Gpedit works with Ultimate and Professional editions of Windows. Here are some common examples of logon preferences:

To Not Display Last User Logged On: Edit

1. Search - cmd - right click - "run as administrator" .

2. Type secpol.msc.

3. Navigate to "Local Policies\Security Options".

4. Navigate to "Interactive Logon: Do Not Display Last User Name = Enabled".

To Not Display CTRL+ALT+DEL To Logon: Edit

1. Search - cmd - right click - "run as administrator" .

2. Type secpol.msc.

3. Navigate to "Local Policies\Security Options".

4. Navigate to "Interactive Logon: Do Not Require CTRL+ALT+DEL to Logon = Enabled".

To Enable Classic Logon (Doesn't Work for a Domain): Edit

1. Run - gpedit.msc

2. Navigate to "Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon

3. Navigate to "Always use Classic Logon = Enabled".

To Enable Auto-Login: Edit

1. Run - regedit

2. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

3. Double-click the DefaultUserName entry, type your user name, and then click OK.

4. Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password, and then click OK. NOTE: If the DefaultPassword value does not exist, it MUST be added. To add the value, follow these steps:

a. Edit - New - String Value. Type "DefaultPassword". Set it's value to your password.

b. If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon key from 1 (true) to 0 (false), disabling the AutoAdminLogon feature.

5. Edit - New - String Value. Type "AutoAdminLogon", set it's value to "1".

6. Exit regedit and reboot your computer.
