27 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1
Enable CTRL+ALT+DEL log-in

Some people like this feature so here's how you enable it in Windows 7.

In the search box in the start menu type "netplwiz" without the quotation marks.

A pane called User Accounts will appear.

Click on the Advanced tab.

At the bottom you will see "Require users to press ctrl+alt+delete".

Check this box.

Thanks, tw33k!

I used your method and it works.

Out of curiosity, I fired up gpedit.msc and saw screens similar to the ones I'm used to seeing in older versions of Win. Note that the policy is "undefined". I was tempted to modify it in the fashion that will require ctrl-alt-del, but fear stayed my hand . Comments?
