Welcome screen


OSNN Senior Addict
Can anyone tell me how to stop the welcome screen popping up when i boot my computer, it seems a waste of time to me and i would like to get rid of it...

There is a easy way to disable the Welcome Screen:

Go to START --> Control Panel --> User Accounts. One of the tasks you can choose is Change the way users log on or off. Click on that.

And there are two checkboxes. If you disable Welcome Screen, The Use Fast User Switching is disabled automatically. You must have the welcome screen on if you want Fast User Switching.

Close all boxes and windows and you are done.

Only disable that way if you know your 'login' password, or it won't let you back in!!!!NOT even in 'SafeMode'.Be careful.:happy:


Hmm I wonder if this guy ever managed to login after he changed the way he logs on ROFL...

= him :eek:


I didn't understand the last two posts. What Jason Roberts described only replaces the Windows XP welcome screen, with the Win2k login boxes. (Apart from the changes relied to Fast User Switching). Anyway if there is no password for an account these login boxes accept blank passwords and if there is a password and you forget it, you are screwed no matter what login style you use.
To answer the original question I think what you are after is to avoid any kind of login screen. You can achieve this by using TweakUi - Logon - Autologon.

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
