Icons & Cntrl+Alt+Del

Is there anyway I can have it where when I turn on the computer it
automatically goes to the icons, but if I press Cntrl+Alt+Del I can
logon to an (hidden) account?

Re: Icons & Cntrl+Alt+Del
No, you can't have it both ways. When the computer "automatically goes to
the icons" it's already logged in with whatever account is set up as the
default. Once the computer is logged in you must log out or switch users to
access another account. There's no way to make Windows do otherwise.

Re: Icons & Cntrl+Alt+Del

Hmm... when I say icons I mean like this: [image:
http://media.wiley.com/Lux/28/80028.image0.jpg]... and it automatically
goes to this screen so its not logged on like you said. So what I want
to be able to do is press cntrl+alt+del at the screen in the pic above
to get to this screen: [image:

Is it possible? Or is it still impossible?
p.s. Sorry I forgot to quote.

Details ALWAYS help. That's a bit different, then. There are any number of
ways to set an account to be automatically logged on, my personal favorite
from the Windows XP days on is the Registry edit method:

Or if you prefer, do it from within Windows:

Before someone else jumps in ... Method #1 is actually from the Windows NT
days. ;-)
