Windows 7: Win7 Logon option

Win7 Logon option

The option to "hide" a user account from appearing at the logon screen and in the Users area of Windows 7 still works. The process is detailed at the following site:

User Account - Hide - Vista Forums


However, the issue I am finding with this is that Windows 7 does not appear to have the same feature as WinXP of tapping CTRL-ALT-DEL twice at the Welcome screen to bring up a logon/password box allowing you to manually input in the hidden account.

So, my question is how can you access a hidden account at the Welcome screen in Windows 7?

Hello Perilous, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can set Windows 7 to have the users log on with their username and password instead, so that you could enter the hidden user account's username and password this way instead.

Logon with Username and Password - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
Shawn
