This build contains a user friendly login screen, which is unchanged from [[Windows Neptune|Neptune]] [[Windows Neptune build 5111.1|build 5111]]. To enable it, change the value of <code>LogonType</code> DWORD in <code>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Winlogon</code> to 1. While functional, the shutdown button only relaunches the login screen unless Shift is held down.
