    Thanks. That's what i'm looking for and this would be useful at my school, but does it improve login speed a little bit?

    Hello evildog1, :)

    Disabling the first sign-in experience saves you a little bit of time for only the first sign-in.

    With Group Policy, the same can be used in domain group policy isn't it? Any variations from the actual policy?

    Hello @norb, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm afraid that I don't know for domain group policy. Hopefully, someone else may know.

    Also, I would like to add that in my windows 10 version 1511 the registry path for the dword value is in the following one:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon not the one mentioned in the recommendation.

    Thank you norb. The policy setting in the both options of the tutorial will override this setting, but I'll include it in the .reg file to be thorough. :)
