Remove user login icons from login screen?

Is it possible to have users but not have their login icon appear on the login screen?

Hello AAAHome,

You could have it where users must enter their username and password at log on to not have any user icons displayed.

Log On with User Name and Password

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brink you read my mind the good old NT style logon screen. Part of why I love having all my machines on a domain

I'm not sure what you mean. I had to create users for each employee on our network because we use Business Contact Manager & the server for that is on my pc. But I don't want them to be able to logon at all, as in my login icon is the only one visible.

Oh & they're all already set to require username & passwords. I just don't want their user icons showing on the logon screen, so they can't log in. Make sense?

Try this: it's supposed to do what you want, but make sure you've got a recent backup and create a restore point since I didn't test it:
