How to Show a Custom message Note on Windows 11 Login Screen

Windows 11 has come along with a lot of new features and one of them includes displaying a custom message on the login screen. The Windows 10 already had the option to customize your login screen such as, setting a background specifically for the lock screen, settings lock screen apps, setting a screen time out for the lock screen and more. However, you can also customize the login screen by adding a welcome message or a warning.

While the welcome or the warning message can be set if your PC has multiple users and this will welcome them or alert them before they login to your PC, you can also want to simply display a message on the login screen or or something like when was the last login done.

There are not many methods to do so currently and the only way is to make some changes to the registry to be able to show a custom message note on your Windows 11 log in screen. Let’s see how:
