Disable Ctrl + Alt + Delt Prompt to Login Windows Server 2012

By default, whenever we boot Windows Server 2012 we will be asked to press ctrl + alt + del on logon screen. Sometimes this is annoying and fortunately we can remove it so we can start typing the username and password without pressing ctrl+alt+del.

In this article we will discuss about how to disable Ctrl+Alt+Del prompt.

The Idea

Everytime we login we need to press Ctrl+Alt+Del. This policy is defined by Windows on “Local Security Policies” and can be disabled manually.

How to Enable

Open the “Start” screen, click “Administrative Tools”.
