Windows 7: How to change login screen to show one user and only ask for password?

How to change login screen to show one user and only ask for password?

I have Windows 7. Whenever I turn on my computer, it takes me to my Log In screen. Here, it asks me to enter my username and password. I would like to customize my Log In screen so that it always shows my username only (and no other users), and only asks for my password. I've done this before, but I can't remember how. I edited something in the registry before. Could someone please explain the process to me? Thank you!
