Alejandra and I have been quite busy over here at BitCollectors over the last couple of months. We have re-done our website at www.bitcollectors.com, updated our blogs at blog.bitcollectors.com, made several software updates, and even released a couple of new projects. See below for further details on the updates.
If anyone has a suggestion for a better name than “Hide Welcome Screen Users” please feel free to drop me a line :).
Basically it’s just a very small tool written in C#/.NET that allows you to hide users from the Welcome Screen in Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2. I needed to create several users that performed system tasks, and it was annoying to see them on my Welcome Screen every time I booted up. There’s an easy way in the registry to prevent specific users from showing up there, so this tool is basically just a small tool that edits those registry keys.
It’s checked in at: https://github.com/aplocher/Welcome-Screen-Hide-Users. Please let me know if you find any issues with it.
