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”.


Double click the “Local Security Policy” icon, expand Local Policies and click Security Options. In the right pane search and open”Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL” and choose “Enabled“. Save the policy change by clicking OK.
