Remove The XP Logon Last Typed Username


Article Published by Marc Liron - Microsoft MVP (2004-2010)

PowerSuite 2011 has Now arrived...

This is the most powerful boot utility disk. When your computer crashes, cannot enter Windows, or you want to work under boot environment, this is your NO. 1 choice.




If you have tried the Log on Screen option (as discussed in Windows XP Tip 10), you may have noticed that the last person to Logon still has their name in the "username" section of the Logon dialog box.

To prevent this:

1) Open the registry editor and navigate to:


2) Create a new "String Value" by:

Edit > New > String Value

3) Type: DontDisplayLastUserName for the name of the new string.

4) For the Value data type: 1

5) Click OK and close the registry editor.

NB: If you wish to use the "Automatic Logon" (Windows XP Tip 14) option at a latter date you WILL have to remove the above registry entry... You may want to print this page for your records now!
