LogonSettings
Home
Windows utility.
On a machine that is not member of a domain:
  • Enables or disables a user account
  • Hides a user name on Windows welcome screen
LogonSettings
Windows can show two types of screen on startup: a "Welcome Screen" or a "Logon screen". Welcome screen is the default screen when the machine is a member of a workgroup, not a domain.
A welcome screen shows the list of users names whose account is not disabled. A user name can be hidden from this list without being disabled.
Enabling or disabling a user account
On the [ User Accounts ] tab, check or uncheck a checkbox in the "Enabled" column.
Even built-in user accounts can be enabled.
Remember that at least one administrator account must be enabled.
Making a user name visible or hidden on welcome screen
On the [ User Accounts ] tab, check or uncheck a checkbox on the "Visible" column.
Performing settings using this software
This software needs administrator privileges to perform these settings. It displays the current user account name, and indicates if it has the administrator's privileges. From Vista and up, if UAC is on, you must start this software by means of the "Run as administrator" command (right-click).
Performing settings without this software
Although this software can perform these tasks with a few clicks, you may prefer to use regedit and the command prompt. You will find explanations on how to do that on the [ ? ] tab.
Viewing and saving users logon settings registry key
The [ Registry ] tab allows you to save the logon settings key, or to open regedit on this key.
