Hide your Windows user account

Posted on November 9, 2006. Filed under: Windows XP |


The IntelliAdmin weblog describes how to hide a user account from the Windows XP welcome screen.

The author claims you might want to do hide your account so that other users aren’t “tempted to try getting into it while they are on [your] computer,” but we all know that the real reason you’d want to do this is so that you can do strange and kinky things on it and no one would know it exists. Just keep in mind that you’d probably want to move your Docs and Settings, too. Either way, you can hide your account with a little work with your registry, or you can use IntelliAdmin’s simple app for doing the same thing.
