Tech Tip: Removing the need for Ctrl-Alt-Del aka No more three fingers

If you are tired of holding down those three familiar yet spaced-far-apart keys to logon your machine, here is the way to get rid of Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

It does involve a registry modification so be careful and back up the entries before doing this.

Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Create a REG_DWORD called: DisableCAD

Then modify the data value as appropriate:

Value Data: (0 = Require Ctrl+Alt+Delete, 1 = Disable)
