If you are getting annoyed of the welcome screen in Windows 7, there are ways to disable it but not remove it depending on what edition you are using. There are six (6) editions of Windows 7 and only three are available in retail: Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate. The remaining three editions were not available in retail: Starter, Home Basic, and Enterprise.

If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you can use the Group Policy Editor to disable the welcome screen. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “gpedit.msc” and then hit Enter. In “Group Policy” window, go to or expand “Computer Configuration,” “Windows Settings,” “Security Settings,” “Local Policies” then “Security Options.”

On the right pane, locate and double-click “Interactive logon: Do not display last user name” to open the “Properties.” Or right-click “Interactive logon: Do not display last user name” and select “Properties.” In the properties window, in “Local Security Setting” tab, select “Enabled” then click “OK.” Restart the computer when you are finished.

Enable "Interactive logon: Do not display last user name"
Enable “Interactive logon: Do not display last user name”

If you have Windows 7 Home Premium, by default, the Group Policy Editor is not available. Instead, you can use the registry editor. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type without quotes “regedit” and then hit Enter. In the “Registry Editor” window, navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

On the right pane, locate and double-click “dontdisplaylastusername.” Change “Value data” to without quotes “1” then click “OK.” Restart the computer when you are finished.
