Can anyone please tell me how to hide admin account from the welcome screen without disabling it?
The method that uses the
SpecialAccounts registry key does disable the account, so you can no longer enter the admin password to run elevated tasks from a limited account.
The solution should be usable by Home editions of Windows, so if it requires a group-policy, please also include the registry entry that the group-policy editor alters.
SpecialAccountsregistry key does NOT disable the account. It is only hidden as you told it to. This is very different. Now actually an answer to your question (for anyone who reaches this question by search): how to hide admin account while still using it in UAC superuser.com/a/182382
