Windows - "Don't Display Last Login User Name" via GPO and Regedit

By default Windows will display the last user that successfully logged on, on shared machines or in a secure domain environment you might not want this..
Dont Display Last Logon

Solution

On a Single (stand alone) machine.
1. Click start and in the run/search box type gpedit.msc{enter}
2. Navigate to > Computer Configuration > Windows settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > "Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name".
GPO Do not display last user name
3. Simply enable the policy.
Stop last username being displayed
4. Reboot the PC or run gpupdate /force.
In case using a policy editor is not an option for you, you can also access this configuration setting directly in registry. After all, a policy editor is only an admin interface for making changes to registry values.
You can set up the Do not display last user name by modifying one setting in your registry. Open the Registry Editor by going to your Start menu, clicking Run, typing regedit and hitting ENTER. Then locate the following registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Change the value of the dontdisplaylastusername keyword to 1. You can see the dontdisplaylastusername setting on the picture below.
