    Hi there. Is this what you're trying to achieve?

    First Sign-in Animation - Enable or Disable in Windows 8


    Bring up the Run dialog with Winkey+R and enter "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes), clear the "Users must enter..." box and follow the prompts. Please be informed that this will bypass the log-in screen by automatically logging into a user when Windows starts.

    Ok. Don't know of any way. I've scoured the tutorials here to no avail. You may want to have a look. I would guess it would be a Registry hack or 3rd party software might be an alternative. Be careful with the Registry though.
