    How to hide a user account from the logon screen?


    I'm trying to create a user account that I need to run some apps with using a remote connection. (The reason for a separate account is so that I can assign it a special set of permissions/privileges.)

    If I create just another user account, it shows up in the logon screen. Which I don't want to prevent confusion.

    But if I set a GPO to block this account on the local system, I can't seem to use it to start any process under (I'm getting an error code 1385, ERROR_LOGON_TYPE_NOT_GRANTED):

    Hiding user accounts

    Hi all,

    So question for you, I have a machine, non-domain, windows 7 home prem. I have a tech account and a user account, when you get to windows logon, it shows tech profile there.is there a way to hide the tech profile from the logon screen...?Or make it so they have to type their credentials in manually to logon..?

    obviously secpol or gpedit would be perfect for requiring control alt delete on logon in windows pro but on home prem i cant figure out a way.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hide or remove user image at logon window


    You'll need to be signed on as Administrator and show 'hidden files, folders and drives' in Folder Options.

    Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and rename the 448X448 user.png to user.pak, (or something).

    Hide or remove user image at logon window


    Hi guys, is there a way to hide or remove the user picture at the login screen?

    I've managed to change the background image of the login screen, but that big circle that shows a picture of the user is pointless and ruins my image.
