Clear last user name from Horizon client login window

Jump to solution

Hello,

When I powerup a thin client that uses the Horizon 3.5.2 client, the User name field shows the user name of the previous user.

Is there anyway to clear this ?

Regards,

Oliver

The Windows client respects the GPO that Windows itself uses to determine whether to show the last used username on the login screen.  So if you configure Windows to not show the last username after logoff, the client should do the same thing. I don't have the name of the GPO offhand, sorry.

this is the key you want to look for and set to one.  keep in mind that it will clear last logged in user for windows as well.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]

"dontdisplaylastusername"=dword:00000001
