    Keyboard Shortcut (Win XP Pro)

    I learned something recently from InfiniSource that many of you long-time NT or 2000 users probably already knew. For those who don't, it has to do with the XP logon screen. It so happens that on my home machine, which is NOT on a domain, I use the Welcome Screen and only display myself and my son, the normal users. I always thought that to logon as the built-in Administrator, I had to turn off the Welcome Screen or logon in Safe Mode. It turns out that at the Welcome Screen, if you press Ctrl-Alt-Delete TWICE, it will bring up the "Classic" logon screen.

    But with "TweakUI" you can have the Admin account on the Welcome screen also.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Yeah, thanks Dave, I do have TweakUI and have set it to display ONLY mine (admin) and my son's (restricted) on the Welcome screen, for safety sake. I have the built-in Admin and an "emergency" profile with administrative rights turned OFF on the Welcome screen on purpose. (Like, a guy with belt AND suspenders, huh?)
