When a user login the very first time on a Windows 8 of 8.1 machine, they will see a “animation” with some helpful tips. During this stage the userprofile is being created and prepared. While the first sign-in animation may be helpful to new users to see, but it slows down the logintimes. So let’s turn this animation off using RES Automation Manager 2012.
1.) Create a new module with RES Automation Manager 2012
2.) Choose for “Apply Registry Settings”
3.) Navigate to the following registry section
4.) Create a new REG_DWORD named EnableFirstLogonAnimation
5.) Give it the value 0 to disable and 1 to enable
6.) Schedule the job to your Windows 8 or 8.1 machines, login again and see what happends!
