Using Classic Logon vs. Simple Logon
The simple logon window is implemented in Windows 7. It is the default mechanism for authentication, and although that view can be useful, some users might prefer to see only the classic logon window. To use classic logon rather than simple logon, follow these steps:
- Access Group Policy for the computer you want to work with. Next, access the Administrative Templates policies for Computer Configuration under System/Logon.
- Double-click Always Use Classic Logon. Select Enabled, and then click OK.
