Use the Classic Login Interface (Windows XP)

Windows XP includes a new log on interface to streamline the login process and display user profile information. In some circumstances the old Windows NT/2000 interface may be required in which case you can still access it using this key combination.

  1. Press and hold the Ctrl + Alt keys
  2. Press the Delete key twice
The login screen will now revert back to the previous logon box display, you can switch back to the Windows XP interface by clicking the Cancel button.
