Changing login method to manually - Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 7 Home Premium.. I know I do not have Group Policy Editor to do this.. 

    I used to be able to do it on my older laptop that ran Windows 7 Home Premium.. but I forget how..

    Is there any way to do this if you do not have gpedit?

    I want it to be like a server enviroment where the Username and Password have to be entered manually...

  • Go to Start -- Run and type in (without quotes) "control userpasswords2" and then check the box "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer".  Apply and OK.  

    Be kind and Mark as Answer if I helped.
