How can I remove the user name and the image of Windows XP new Start Menu

Two questions:

1. How can I delete the user name and the image of Windows XP new start; and

2. my computer keeps asking me to press the F1 key to start Windows.  How to skip this part?

Thank you.



The image of user account can be removed by disabling the Welcome screen. Or, by opting for the classic Windows theme. Follow the method described in this article, if you want to remove the user name and the picture in the Start Menu, without disabling the Welcome screen and Windows XP theme.

For those who want to delete the user name and the image of user account from the Start Menu, in order to have a blue white Panel at the top, try this:

Registry warning
Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you proceed with caution. For added protection, back up the registry before you edit it. Then you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

Step 1:

a. start Windows Explorer and go to this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account images

b. in this folder, rename the BMP file that corresponds to your user account.
(For example, if your user name is Robert, rename Robert.bmp to old_Robert.bmp)

c. then rename the following folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\Default pictures
to something else, for example,.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft account Pictures\No_Default images.

Step 2:
To remove the user name, follow these steps

a. Click Start, click "RUN" and type "regedit.exe" and navigate to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Windows Microsoft\------CurrentVersion-policies-Explorer

b. in the right pane, the value NoUserNameInStartMenu-value data 1.

c. close Regedit.exe and restart Windows.

You'll find yourself with a blue area at the top of the Start Menu.

Regarding the pressing 'F1' to start Windows, you have made no changes or was there a system crash after which the problem started?

You may need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS to the default settings. I recommend you contact your PC vendor for this.

Warning of the BIOS:
BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • How can I remove the announcement of Windows 10 from my PC?

    Hello guys,.

    I have a problem. I don't like Windows. I bought Windows 8 when it is 1 out. I also bought an annual subscription of the insurance by Microsoft technical support. Both was a brake. I had a tech run some on my PC Studio software and it has messed up and Microsoft will take the responsibility to fix. Then whenever an update would come out with Windows 8, it will automatically install and jack my PC until I have to reinstall everything again. After the last time, I decided to keep my Windows 7 and do not use Windows 8 every time. Now that Windows 10 has been released, I get this advertising stupid to download Windows 10. Hello Microsoft, I am so disappointed with your terrible and software support I'm sorry, I don't want your Windows 10. So can someone please tell me how to take this announcement out of my PC? Now on my toolbar and I see No Way to uninstall it. I don't want the garbage on my PC... Please help me? And you the Microsoft Techs, I found the newspaper in my PC where your TECH messed up my PC with, your level 1 people said only that no technology each employee who. So, are you still not responsible enough to fix what you broke up? If this isn't the case, it's cool because I really don't trust you guys more. Please the community help me with this issue?

  • How can I remove the checkerboard drawing in a new layer in 2015 CC?

    I'm doing some exercises drawing using layers with drawing on a layer underneath (opacity turned down). How can I get rid of the checkerboard design in each of the layers so I see what I paint more clearly? I named the layer and watched in the layers panel, but no luck. Thank you very much!

    You realize that the Board is in fact the background, and that new layers without content allow you to see through to this context?  You can fill the background with white, or you can disable the grid in Preferences > transparency, but all that will do is make each new layer appear to be filled with white, except that you will be able to see through the underlying layers.

  • How can I remove "the folder/Users/user/to/mygame doesn't exist." Terminal. Rises every time I launch Terminal.

    How can I remove "the folder/Users/user/to/mygame doesn't exist." Terminal. Rises every time I launch Terminal. I am a novice. Thank you very much.

    1. Please select from the menu bar Terminal

    ▹ terminal preferences... ▹ Profiles ▹ Shell

    If the run command box is checked, uncheck it or enter the command to run automatically (if any), each opening of a Terminal window. Note: this is not how you define a default shell.

    2. If step 1 does not resolve the problem, see below.

    Back up all data.


    New Shell command ▹

    in the Terminal menu bar. Uncheck the box marked

    Run the command inside a shell

    If it is enabled.

    Copy and paste the following line into the text box that appears, and then press return:

    /bin/mkdir disabled_shell_files

    Close the Terminal window that opens. Repeat with this line:

    /bin/mv .profile .bash_history .bash_profile .bashrc .inputrc disabled_shell_files

    History Shell and former initialization files will be saved in a directory named "disabled_shell_files" at the top level of your home directory. It is normal that some of these files do not exist, and therefore, you will get error "no file".

    Close the window and open a new test.

    You may already know that files with name starting in '. ' are not visible in the Finder by default. So, if you open the folder that you created in the Finder, it will appear as empty, even if it is not. If you need to recover a portion of the data in the files of the shell, use a shell such as nano-based text editor (1). Make sure that you're not recreating the problem. Otherwise, you can delete the folder.

  • How can I remove the file name of movies that I import from my camera?

    How can I remove the filename of movies that I import from my camera - the film shows the name of the file on the screen and then disappears slowly?  Using Win 7 Pro and Home premium 64-bit.   Thank you.

    Edition - shows only upward on one of the 2 computers I have / use.  Any movie file I import was that if camera, animation or imported from youtube.  All formats - slight differences in size, fonts and the location.

    Hi and thanks... Videos out of my camera I'm just drag and drop to the desktop.  They are avi - cam is a Canon about a year.  Others are .mov of 3D software I use - Cinema 4 d. I save animation software in the appropriate folder.   Youtube videos are made with YOutube Video Downloader and files are for most .flv but others come too.

    All of these files open when doubleclicked and the name of the file is very large print at the bottom of the screen may be 4 seconds then fades.  I've not edited somehow - they are the first "raw" video camera or animation software.

    It is not consistent, but especially it happens only on one machine - Win 7 Pro with all the updates.

    Thank you.

    I suspect the media player you use poster
    the file name. Check the properties/preferences of your
    Media player to see if you can change a setting.

    For example, VLC displays the name of the file... and you
    can go to... Tools / preferences / All / video...

    Scroll down to and uncheck 'Show Media title on Video'... / Save.

    The next time that VLC is started the video title should not be displayed.
