windows 7 login

I don't like the login with the BIG buttons you select the users. Is there anyway I can change where you insert your own username and password to login? example, network login?? This system is a standalone workgroup system, no network login.

Unfortunatelly, you can only change logon screen to use ctrl-alt-del or not, but both ways you get to "click an icon of your username" screen. There is no alternate way, as far as I am informed.

It's annoying to me, too (since on server, for example, with 150 users, I get screen full of icons...bad, very bad!), but I haven't found any way around it.

have a look here, it's for vista and 7, it hides all the usernames and buttons:

other than this, you need to modify your logon gui by messing with shell files which i think is outside the realm of EE

i wish win7 was like winxp where it allows you to turn off the welcome screen and use the classic logon prompt which requires users to type a user acct name.

lots and lots of people wish that, but, you cant :/
