Enable Ctrl+Alt+Delete Logon in Windows

Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to Unlock

Windows Secure Logon offers an extra layer of security for your PC. If you enable secure logon, every time when you start your PC, you have to log on by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete. When secure logon is enabled, other programs ie. a virus or spyware can't seize your username and password. 

Applies to - 
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8/ 8.1


This is not a difficult task at all. But you must know from somewhere. Simply follow the steps below:
  1. Press Start + R.  
  2. Type netplwiz and press enter.
  3. Now you will get User Accounts window as shown below.
  4. Move to the Advanced tab.
  5. Look at the Secure sign-in section.
  6. Check the option - Required users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
  7. Now Apply > OK. Done!

User Accounts Settings - Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to Unlock

From now, you have to sign in by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete. If your account is protected by password, then you have to enter it. 

In my previous post I wrote about - how to disable lock screen. If you disable lock screen and enable secure logon, then it will be a funny scene to see. You will just see user tile without any background. 

So I think, if you enable secure logon, you shouldn't disable lock screen. And if you feel any difficulty or have a query, don't forget to leave a comment . . .
