Hiding User Accounts On Logon Screen In XP

Posted by Shashank Krishna Monday, August 4, 2008

sharethis: If you are using multiple accounts on a same computer and using the new way to Logon, then sometimes you may have felt to hide some of the accounts, as they might be important for you but you use them very often, and don’t want computer to show them all. We do sometimes create some accounts for testing purpose as well. Lets see how to just hide them rather then deleting it and recreating it again.

1. Go to Start –> Run and type regedit.
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
3. There Right click on Userlist, and create a New DWORD value.
4. Name the value as the Account name, and give its value as 0. This will make sure that your account is now hidden.
5. If you want to unhide it back, then just change the value from 0 to 1, this will unhide the account.
