winnate – where’s the ctrl+alt+del?

do you prefer your lock screen to require the ctrl+alt+del key sequence to log on? well, i do. i admit it might be force of habit, but i really enjoy that little sense of security. by default, in windows 8, when you hit a key, the picture screen scrolls up, and let’s you log on.

if you want your security blanket back, this is what you do:

  • open control panel
  • open up user accounts
  • click on “manage user accounts”


  • switch to the advanced tab
  • under secure sign-in, enable “Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete”


and you’re off… :)
