When using XP you could access the classic logon box by holding down CTRL + ALT and pressing Delete twice in quick succession.
I have hidden the Administrator Account on Non-Domain Laptops but can't seem to get the classic logon box to access the hidden account. The Admin account is not disabled.
Anyone found a way to get the Classic logon box back to access the hidden account in a similar fashion while keeping the Welcome Screen.
Create your local admin accounts on the laptop and keep them enabled. Now change/create the following reg entries.
Change %USERNAME% to the accounts you want to hide.Code:Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList] "%USERNAME%"=dword:00000000 "%USERNAME%"=dword:00000000
A value of 1 shows the account 0 hides it.
Now from the welcome screen you can use the switch user button and then logon using one of the hidden accounts.
Require the classic logon box to do that which is what I am trying to display. I'm trying to set up staff laptops that aren't on the domain and ideally just want a welcome screen where they click on their name. I don't want to use the classic logon screen. I want to be able to log in as administrator without the administrator account showing on the welcome screen.
I have hidden the Administrator account with a registry hack but unlike Windows XP the CTRL + ALT + DELETE trick to bring up the classic logon box used/usefull in XP doesn't work.
