    Hi

    In the Group Policy Editor.

    Navigate to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options.

    In the right-hand pane look for the policy:

    Interactive logon: Do not display last user name  -  Change to  Enabled.

    Here is a Screenshot of the login window.

    Hope this helps.

  • Interactive logon: Do not display last user name
    This security setting determines whether the name of the last user to log on to the computer is displayed in the Windows logon screen.
    If this policy is enabled, the name of the last user to successfully log on is not displayed in the Logon Screen. “.

    If this policy is disabled, the name of the last user to log on is displayed.

    Default: Disabled.

    Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL

    This security setting determines whether pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL is required before a user can log on.

    If this policy is enabled on a computer, a user is not required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on. Not having to press CTRL+ALT+DEL leaves users susceptible to attacks that attempt to intercept the users' passwords. Requiring CTRL+ALT+DEL before users log on ensures that users are communicating by means of a trusted path when entering their passwords.

    If this policy is disabled, any user is required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL before logging on to Windows (unless they are using a smart card for Windows logon).

    Default on domain-computers: Disabled.
    Default on stand-alone computers: Enabled.

    Hi Victor

    The Home versions of Windows do not include the Group Policy editior.

    You would need to upgrade to the Professional or Ultimate versions.

  • For those of us with Win7HP, who cannot afford to upgrade to Pro or Ultimate (or have a PC under warranty for a while still and don't want to void the warranty by removing the preinstalled OEM OS) is there a work-around for this, or are we just stuck with the default login screen & options?

  • Hi

     

    After I enabled the "Interactive logon: Don not display last user name" I wasn't able to login using the administrator account even the standard account.

    What will I do then? Thanks
