Cool XP tips & tricks: Disabling the Welcome screen

This feature is very useful if you have only one user account on your computer. The bad thing is that you can't have it ask for a password.

To disable the welcome screen:

Open the Start Menu and select run. Type "control userpasswords2" into the box.
In the user accounts window choose the users tab and clear the box "Users must enter a name and password to use this computer".
Click OK and type your user name and password in the dialog box.
