If someone knows how to replace that stupid ease of access icon, please let me know!
I found this awesome trick on unlockforus today! It allows you to browse the web and do some other stuff without logging on
You all know the little Ease of Access icon on the Welcome Screen/Logon? Well you can hack that so it opens up a Comand Prompt window, with full admin priveliges.
Well me and CommonSense have created an automated installer that automaticly applies this patch for you. Auto_Patcher.zip 69.15K 95 downloads All you have to do is double click it, and follow instructions! When you are on the logon/welcome screen, click the Ease of Access icon (bottom left hand corner) and it will launch the SYSTEM user account. Then you can run any application you like. But you can't use explorer (Pictures, Documents, Computer, Network, Control Panel etc.). Feel free to explore it! If you get sick of it, or don't like it, its easily uninstallable!
Thanks to CommonSense for keeping this updated while i was away! And thanks to Villain for telling us how to get Explorer in the Welcome Screen Trick!
NOTE: The IE trick doesn't work in Windows 7
Everyone thank Villain for this smile.gif
So it is possible to browse Explorer through this little trick. All you have to do is open up any Web Browser and type:
This allows you to see a directory listing!
And if you do this in IE (IE 8 in Win7 beta isn't working for me in this mode though), you get the Windows Explorer Interface.I tested it, and it doesn't seem to be working in IE in windows vista either.
WE CAN NOW BROWSE WINDOWS WITH THIS WELCOME SCREEN TRICK! w00t.gif
Note: It works on Windows 7 (CommonSense tested it)
Note: You cannot use any ease of access features. So you can use this if you are blind
If you want to recomend something, or tell us a bug, let us know!
