Enable or disable the animation of the first user login in Windows 10: When you log in to Windows 10 for the first time, you probably remember the first login animation that shows detailed setup screens, followed by a welcome tutorial. In my case, this login animation is nothing more than a waste of time and if we disable it, the creation of a new account will be faster. Also, whenever you create a new user account in Windows 10 and the user logs in for the first time, they also see this annoying login animation.

Fortunately, Windows 10 allows you to enable or disable these animations but only for the Pro or Enterprise editions. For Windows 10 Home edition users they need to edit these settings through the Registry, but still, it is doable. So without wasting any time let's see how to enable or disable user login animation in Windows 10 with the help of the guide below.
