How to convert your Windows Server 2008...
to a Workstation!

Disabling the CTRL+ALT+DEL Prompt

You've managed to avoid the annoying CTRL+ALT+DEL prompt by using autologon... but it's still there! The CTRL+ALT+DEL prompt will still show up when you lock your PC (Winkey +L) or when you use a password protected screensaver. In here, we'll show you how to disable it completely.


Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy.



Double click on Local Security Policy. Browse to Local Policies -> Security Options.


On the right windows pane, scroll down until you find Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL, double click and then select Enabled (as shown in the screenshot). Click OK. That's it.

That's it! You have successfully configured your Server to act as a Workstation, now you can resume all your usual day-to-day computer activities on Windows Server 2008! :-) You can find more info & extras such as Games, Tweaks, Applications and Downloads from the navigation bar at the top.
