Display Legal Notice on Windows Startup

If your PC has multiple users or you have your PC on a public place, then you can now display legal notice to every user before they log in to your PC. This legal notice will be displayed on the Logon screen at every startup just before the Desktop is loaded.
You can do this pretty easily just by using a small registry hack.

 

Steps to Display Legal Notice on Startup:

1.    Go to Start -> Run, type regedit and hit ENTER.
2.    Navigate to the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system

3.    On the right side pane look for “legalnoticecaption“, double click on it and enter the desired Legal Notice Caption.
Next below this look for “legalnoticetext” and enter the desired Legal Notice Text. The legal notice text can be up to a page in its size so that it can include a set of do’s and dont’s for your computer.
4.    After you do this just restart your computer and upon the next startup you can see the legal notice information for your computer. This trick works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 as well.
I hope you enjoy this post! Pass your comments.
