  • Hiding the Administrators accounts to the Sign-In screen

    Hi

    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?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Given up on Windows 7 then?

    It would appear that you have a choice of the last user account or all user accounts (based on a single registry key) so there does not appear to be any way of showing only some accounts without disabling them

    To save your butler the 30 seconds needed on , here is a link:

    I appreciate that is for Windows 8, not 8.1 or 8.1 update 1, but AFAIK the behaviour has not changed between them

    Since you are using 8.1 Enterprise, you are obviously in a domain environment, so you could also see what group policy settings are available
