  • Welcome screens and logon

    Hello folks
    The reason for this post is that I wanted to get rid of the welcome screen and so on but minlogon was giving me problems like no access to my network drives. So I went on Google hunt. First thing I found was a little registry tweak on
    Not Displaying Logon, Logoff, Startup and Shutdown Status Messages
    Added 3/2/30

    To turn these off:

    Start Regedit
    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\policies\system
    If it is not already there, create a DWORD value named DisableStatusMessages
    Give it a value of 1
    Download a reg file
    There is info to how to get rid of part of the logon screen. But this was not enough I was still getting welcome screen so next thing I found was on another forum:
    Getting rid of the Welcome screen

    i) Start Menu -> Control Panel + select User Accounts.
    ii) Select "Change the way users log on or off"
    iii) Un-tick the "Use the Welcome screen" + apply options. Close the User Accounts window.
    iv) Start Menu -> Run and enter control userpasswords2
    v) Un-tick the "User must enter a username and password to use this computer"
    vi) Enter the password for the person you want to login as.
    When I had used this info I got rid of any welcome screens completely.
    Hope this helps someone
