Specs: Windows XP
Boot XP to the Logon Screen, how is this done? Instead of XP booting to the desktop, would like to boot to the logon screen. Logging off, then back on will bring up the logon screen with the user or user(s).

START---CONTROL PANEL--USER ACCOUNTS. Click 'change the way users log on or off'. Then uncheck 'use the welcome screen' and click 'apply options'.

Dave,
I have done what you suggest. However, useing your method, one has to put-up with that windows classic crap.

Do you have any ideas how I can boot right into the logon screen, ready to simply click on the user.. Incidentally, I am the only user of my computers, including the one I am asking about...

I'm thinking a change in the Registry would no doubt do the trick...
Cheers,

I'm not sure what the 'classic' stuff is. I'll have to set it up that way on mine and see what it does. How the user accounts approach works may depend on if there is more than one user name and whether they use passwords. When I installed XP on my PC I was the only user and no passwords were used so I never dealt with the logon screen.

In this thread from a few days ago the user was trying to get rid of the logon screen:

Riider suggested using tweakui. It may also work to impose the logon screen.

Oh I see what you mean. Kind of annoying but it still gets you there. I'm not sure but if there's only one user and no password you may end up with that 'classic' look if you add the logon box.

Edit Assuming you're the only user I guess you could add a password to your account or add another user. I think either would force the logon box.

But I'd give tweakui a try. Even if you don't need it, it doesn't hurt to have it installed.

Dave,
I do the same here. That is I'm not using any passwords either. The classic, is a small box comes up asking for a password, since I am the only user, the user name
comes up in the user field, expecting a password in the password field..

This isn't a big deal Dave. I was hoping someone would have a quick fix in the
registry. I can logoff, then log back on.
Thanks a bunch, Cheers.

You're welcome. Most single users wouldn't want the logon screen to come up. When it asks for a password you just click OK or hit ENTER.
