hide user account for logon screen

Hi All,

This is something I have seen in windows XP.

On the logon screen you will see different user accounts (icons).  If you hide an account then you will need to press ctl + alt + del to get a different logon screen where you will be required to type a user name and and password.

My question is how to do this in windows 7 Professional?

Thanks in advance

The only time this happens for windows 7 is when the workstation is joined to a domain controller.

Hi,

Open Local Security Policy by going to Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Administrative Tools

Once open click Local Policies -> Security Options and change "Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL" to enabled.

Good Luck!
