XP Login Interfaces

By galahad04 ·
I have a question about the appearance of the Windows XP Pro login user interface, depending on the computer has a domain or workgroup connection. For example, at the office our XP computers display the login interface that requires the user to press ?CTRL-ALT-DELETE? and then enter the user name and password. This was also the interface I was expecting to see when I installed a Windows XP Pro upgrade on my computer.

However, my home computer instead displays a blue welcome screen with alist of all of the users of the computer and picture icons to represent each user. In order to actually log on to my home computer, the selected user must enter an appropriate password, but again this interface is definitely not the one I use at work. The computer is configured as a workgroup.

Therefore, my question is, is it possible to switch the login interface to the one I use at work (i.e., the one that requires the CTRL-ALT-DELETE key press combination)? If so, how do I do this? Also if this is not possible, why is this the case?

To make the logon screen so that you have to press CTRL-ALT-DEL, go into the contorl panel. Double-click User Accounts. Click Change the Way User Log on and Off. Then uncheck Use the Welcome Screen. Click Apply Options. That's all there is to it.
