I thought I’d share this simple little tip to disable that annoying “Hi” screen when you login for the first time after a fresh build.
I created a registry key to disable the animation when you first login and added it to my task sequence as a package.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
The command line that I used was a follows …
regedit.exe /S Disable_First_Run_Animation.reg
And if you want to disable this via GPO – you can change these settings to disable the message once you’re on the domain: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Show first sign-in animation
