Enable or Disable User First Sign-in Animation in Windows 10: When you log in to Windows 10 first time you probably remember the first sign-in animation which shows detailed preparation screens, followed by a welcome tutorial. In my case this sign-in animation is nothing just a waste of time and disabling it would result in faster new account creation. Also, every time you create a new user account in Windows 10 and the user sign-in for the first time they also see this annoying sign-in animation.
Thankfully, Windows 10 allows you to enable or disable these animations but only for Pro or Enterprise Editions. For Windows 10 Home edition users they need to edit these settings via Registry but still, it’s achievable. So without wasting any time let’s see How to Enable or Disable User First Sign-in Animation in Windows 10 with the help of the below-listed guide.
