Hi, I'm Noah, and today we're going to learn how to remove a username from the Windows XP logon screen. If you have an older brother or a son who's gone off to college, or somebody who's just not using that computer anymore, then you'll want to remove his username from the logon screen, so you can go directly to your username without having to even go through a menu first. To remove a user account from the Windows XP login screen, we first have to go to the Start menu and then to the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, simply locate the User Accounts icon, and double-click on it. Now, pick the Change an account task, and then pick the account that you'd like to delete, for example, in our case, the Example account. Then, select the last option, which is Delete the account. Now you'll be asked whether you'd like to keep the files associated with the account, or not, so make your choice carefully, cause if you select Delete Files you'll lose them forever. Once you've selected your choice, click Delete Account once more to confirm your intentions. And there we go. We can now see in the account screen that the account is gone. Now, when you turn on your computer, the choice of logging in to that account will be absent from the login screen.
