XP Welcome Screen

Recommended Posts

lovely    0

How do you get the XP welcome screen (w/ the icons and user names) to show at start up and logon? Whenever I startup I get the traditional Ctrl-Alt-Del window w/ out icons. This requires me to manually enter the logon person?

Thanks:)

Start Menu > Control Panel > User Accounts

there you can turn on/off the Welcome screen. :)

Then click on the *Advanced* tab, assuming you are in classic view :)

well, i?m running my web & ftp server on this computer, but my girlfriend wants to use it, too

Adv. Server would be exactly the perfect OS for this, all programs keep running while my g/f is logged on. so why the hell is there no login screen in ADS ???

I had Advanced Server on my PC, and I can tell you the "welcome Screen" doesnot exist.

Because advs is a "secure" o/s it uses the traditional ctrl-alt-del logon process. This is because it is more secure to use ctrl-alt-del.

If you want the "Welcome Screen" use XP Home or Pro.

I hope this helps you.

Hmmmm, well after you join a domain with XP-Pro you can only use the CTRL-ALT-DEL to login.

XP Home edition does not come with the capabilities to join a domain, so the login screen is yours to choose.

I personally like the CTRL-ALT-DEL, much more secure !
