I need to make a customization to the logon screen you see after the screen has been locked.  I've changed a setting in the machines local security policy:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked

I have that set to User display name only.  My goal was to hide the domain name.

When I press CTRL+ALT+DEL to logon I then have to type in my username and password to logon.

This is annoying to users and I'm hoping somebody knows how I can add an option for that setting to allow me to hide the domain name at the locked screen but still have the username filled in automatically for the user when the press CTRL+ALT+DEL to unlock the screen.
