Supresses the Getting Started with Windows 2000 welcome screen.
This policy hides the welcome screen that is displayed on Windows 2000 Professional each time the user logs on.
Users can still display the Getting Started with Windows 2000 welcome screen by selecting it from the Start menu or by typing Welcome in the Run dialog box.
This policy applies only to Windows 2000 Professional. It does not affect the Configure Your Server on a Windows 2000 Server screen on Windows 2000 Server.
This policy appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both policies are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.
To display the welcome screen, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Getting Started. To suppress the welcome screen without setting a policy, clear the Show this screen at startup check box on the welcome screen.
