Customizing Mint’s login screen

One of the things I don’t like about the default login screen in Linux Mint Cinnamon Version 18.3 (Sylvia) is the availability of a guest session. Fortunately, it’s easy to disable this function:

(1) Navigate to Menu – Administration – Login Window

(2) Enter the root password in the “Login Window” pop-up dialogue box

(3) Navigate to Users – Guest sessions – Allow guest sessions, and toggle the switch to Off

Another useful tweak in this same command window is to navigate to Appearance – Background – Draw a grid, and toggle its switch to Off. This gives the login screen a much cleaner look.

    Thank you for linking to my post Sir 😉 I just wanted to tell you that the grid tip was also pretty cool, and I agree that the login screen looks much better this way.
