Windows XP Login Screen on Domain

Specs: Windows XP

Hi all.

I need help in enabling the Windows XP Login screen while the computer is connected to a domain. I have searched and posted the question on other forums also but no response. I am tired to using the Classic Login Screen at my office. I want to use the Windows XP Login Screen.

Is there any way to enable it. Any script? any Add-on. anything. please let me know then.

thanks.

Bye.

Edit Group Policy. Edit the value that says: 'Do not require CTRL, ALT DEL to logon' Set this to 'Enabled' If your computer is a member of the domain the network logon box will be shown when the station has completed the next start up. Or you could chat to the domain administrator to set these policies for you.

It sounds like your referring to the nice looking welcome screen with a selection on of user icons. If that is the case, that the welcome screen you get with XP home and when when XP is not a member of the domain. only XP pro can be joined to the domain, not home edition. Once the computer is a member of the domain, fast user switching is disabled. With fast user switching disabled you get only the generic login prompt and screen. Fast User Switching is not available on Windows XP Professional computers that are part of a domain network.

You may be able to use group policy to re-enable the nice looking logging welcome screen at the domain level or local desktop level. On the domain level you will need to have a domain admin do it. If you have local admin rights to your computer, then you can do it locally.
