How to show all available users when signon

by Mario120560 / December 9, 2007 11:15 PM PST

Dear user,

I need to boot as administrator, but my PC doesn't show the option to boot as administrator.

I don't remember exactly the keys I should press during the booting to enable that selection, can you please help me out.

TweakUI for XP has a function that will allow the Admin Account to show on the logon screen, if you require it. Tell us if it works in XP HOME.

add administrator account to start up
by eterrestrial / December 10, 2007 7:30 AM PST

By default, the Administrator account is not displayed on the Welcome Screen.

Start the Registry Editor
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \
Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList \
Right-click an empty space in the right pane and select New > DWORD Value
Name the new value Administrator
Double-click this new value, and enter 1 as it's Value data
Close the registry editor
