I don’t want to use the Welcome screen

By default, Windows XP provides you with the Welcome screen, which gives an icon and a list of all users. In order to log on, you simply click your user name and provide your password, if necessary. However, you don’t have to use the Welcome screen if you don’t want to. Once removed, a standard Windows logon dialog box appears, in which you will have to type your user name and password.

In cases where several people use a computer, such as in an office, you might want to remove the Welcome screen for added security. If you remove the Welcome screen, no one will know the user names of other people who log on to the computer.

To remove the Welcome screen, follow these steps:
1. Log on with an administrator account.

2. Click Start--> Control Panel--> User Accounts.

3. In the User Accounts window--> click the Change the Way Users Log On or Off option.

In the Select Logon and Logoff Options window--> clear the Use the Welcome Screen check box and click the Apply Options button.
