Complementary features to Custom Logon
You may want to use or change some of the following features in conjunction with Custom Logon to complete the user experience.
We recommend that you remove the power button from the Welcome screen and block the physical power button so that a user cannot turn off the device when using assigned access or Shell Launcher.
Go to Power Options > Choose what the power button does, change the setting to Do nothing, and then Save changes.
Remove buttons from Welcome screen
To remove buttons from the Welcome screen, set the appropriate value for BrandingNeutral in the following registry key:
The following table shows the possible values. To disable multiple Welcome screen UI elements, combine these values using bitwise exclusive-or logic.
|Disable all Welcome screen UI elements||
|Disable the Power button||
|Disable the Language button||
|Disable the Ease of Access button||
|Disable the Switch user button||
|Disable the Blocked Shutdown Resolver (BSDR) screen so that restarting or shutting down the system causes the OS to immediately force close any open applications that are blocking system shut down. No UI is displayed, and users are not given a chance to cancel the shutdown process||
In the following image of the
[ctrl + alt + del] screen, you can see the Switch user button highlighted by a light green outline, the Language button highlighted by an orange outline, the Ease of Access button highlighted by a red outline, and the power button highlighted by a yellow outline. If you disable these buttons, they are hidden from the UI.
You can remove the Wireless UI option from the Welcome screen by using Group Policy.
