Login Screen in Windows XP

by sukumar99 / April 22, 2004 10:28 PM PDT


I was recently working on my laptop trying to connect it to my desktop. After having established the connection I do not get the original Windows XP login page such as Guest and Administrator.

I get only one login dialog box for the administrator to login.

Please let me know how I could get the original Windows XP login page.

Logon as administrator. In Control Panel, click User Accounts. Click Change the way users log on or off. Check the box Use the welcome screen and make sure that the box Use Fast User Switching is also checked. Click Apply Setings, restart PC.
