The OnScreen Logon Utilities for Windows 8 have been provided to bring flexibility to the implementation of Pen and Touchscreen systems without requiring a physical keyboard. By using the OnScreen Logon Utilities, the following benefits can be realized:
Consistency in the user interface
Flexibility for different screen resolutions and user interfaces
Secure Logon operation without the need for a physical keyboard
Control of user input options may provide additional security (e.g. limiting keyboard layout in conjunction with other logon authentication tools)
OnScreen can also interact with the new Start Screen and provide several options to customize the logon/startup sequence.
In addition, the Automatic Logon option has also been incorporated as a convenience within this utility, allowing a fixed user/password combination to start up Windows 8 without any user interaction required.
The proper configuration and implementation of this utility requires a user with Administrator rights
Proper licensing is required or the Logon module will revert to a demonstration and eventually disable itself
All configuration should be done via the OnScreen Logon Utilities program accessible from the Program Menu for OnScreen
