you gotta go into the control panel, users, and set tick the box to use the welcome screen

That is how you do it in XP but not Vista. I think you mean to just have the window there with your name and options you can choose. If so I have not found a way to do that yet if it is even possible.

run > control userpasswords2

That has an option for Ctrl+Alt+Delete but it does not do what I think you want to do.

I'm not sure if that's even possible with Vista, since you can't disable the Welcome Screen anymore.
Just use Ctrl+Shift+Esc if you want to bring up Task Manager directly.

ctrl-alt-delete never brought up task manager.. even in win2000/xp it would bring up a box to lock the computer/restart/task manager,etc..

ctrl-shift-esc has always been the shortcut for taskmanager (in win2k/xp world as well).

True, unless you're using fast user switching with the welcome screen, it then brings up the task manager :)

I always hated the fast user switching and never used it on XP..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
