Hide Admin Account at Welcome screen but still log on to it???
Hi all,

If somebody wanted to in Vista:
-Have an admin account not visible (hidden) at the Welcome screen, and
-still be able to log onto that account, and
-have other standard users log-on without having to use CTRL-ALT-DEL.
How would it be done?

This is a Workgroup environment, and I'm old fashioned and like the way Win
XP treated the Administrator account being hidden, but one could still
CTRL-ALT-DEL to the classic logon if the user got themselves locked out.

Thanks,
Ed Hall

Hello Ed,

That option has been removed in Vista. An alternative is to use the log
on with user name and password option. This way none of the accounts are
displayed.

Hope this helps,
