Before going into this tutorial, it would be better to first state what is Windows security window; the answer is simple, it’s the window that pops up when you hit ctrl+alt+delete. Yes, that menu that allows you to restart, switch user, lock the computer etc..
Won’t it be great if you can control what appears on this menu? If you’re wondering why that would be great, imagine that you’re on a shared computer at home or work, it’s best to control what appears and what doesn’t.
This post will present a step by step guide on how to customize the Windows security window, now and without further ado let’s dive into the tutorial.
Step 1: Type gpedit.msc in the search bar / Cortana and hit “Enter”.
Step 2: Navigate to; User Configuration → Administrative Templates → System → ctrl+alt+delete options.
Step 3: On the left hand side menu double click on the option you want to hide for the sake of demonstration we’ll choose “Remove Lock Computer”.
Step 4: A new window will pop up, click on the radio button beside “enabled” then hit the “Apply” tab at the bottom of the window.
Congratulations, now you’ve successfully customized the Windows security window, of course you can repeat the same step to enable or disable any other available option.
