How do I force users to type their username and password to log in and remove the welcome screen?
You can remove the list of user accounts from the welcome screen and force the user
to type in a user account and password to log in by changing the following setting:
- Press start
- Type: local security policy
- Press enter
- Click Security Options
- Double-click "Interactive Login:
Do not display last user name"
- Check Enabled
- Click OK
Note that the "welcome screen" is still displayed, but its behavior with this setting
enabled is similar to the functionality of the old-style login dialog box.
You cannot go back to the old-style login dialog box. The new welcome screen completely
replaces this functionality.
