By default, when you open (or close) a Windows session, the latter displays a banal Welcome message (or Windows Closure). Be aware that you have the option of displaying more detailed messages of what is happening at that moment. Follow the guide to activate them.

Before any changes in the registry editor, consider making a backup of it by reading our tutorial.

To do this, open the start Menu, enter regedit and do Entry.

Search the following key using the left tree:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Policies\System

In the right column, edit the DWORD value VerboseStatus double-clicking on it. Enter 1 in Value data and click on OK.

If this value does not exist, create it by right-clicking in the right side, and then Nouveau and finally DWORD value (32 bits). Name it VerboseStatus.

Close the Register. The amendments apply immediately. Do the test by closing your session to see status messages appear.
