    Hiding the Administrators accounts to the Sign-In screen


    I have Windows 8.1 Update Enterprise 64 bit.

    How do I prevent that one or more Administrators accounts are displayed in the Sign-in screen where all users are listed without these are disabled?

    How can I access to one of them?

    Hello Balubeto,

    If you like, you could set Windows to require users to enter both their user name and password on the sign in screen. This way no users will be seen.

Customize Logon/Sign In Screen?
Has anyone yet figured out how to customize (add an image) to the Windows 8 Logon/Sign In screen? I do not mean the "lock" screen, which I have disabled. I mean the actual logon screen. The plain color background is so boring and ugly. WTF was Microsoft thinking? Any and all replies appreciated.
